Dawn, Thanks for suggesting this recipe. I made it this weekend for "Atkins" friends, and they loved it. Said it had a nice spicy flavor. I left the cumin out, because DH dislikes it with a passion. I used 6 split (half) chicken breasts and baked them in the oven for about 35 minutes. Chicken was tasty & juicy, I'll definitely make this again.
