My husband and I loved this.I made some minor adjustments for our tastes. I added some salt, pepper, and another tablespoon of lime juice to the chicken marinade and used medium salsa because we like a little more spice. I really liked the lime flavor incorporated into the the noodles. The was very easy to make and had a nice zingy taste. Thanks Nurse Di.
