This is a very good recipe and we really enjoyed the hint of sweetness from the corn. Due to some time restraints because of some expected circumstances, I cooked this on top of the stove instead of baking it in the oven. DD raved about it. I used chicken thighs (our favorite) instead of chicken breasts and added extra chili powder and cumin because we love the flavor. To prepare on top of the stove, I sauteed the chicken until it was golden brown along with the onions and garlic. Then added the remaining ingredients along with 1 1/2 cups of water, brought it to a boil and them simmered it covered for 5 minutes and then let it set for another 5 minutes before serving. Thanks for posting this Bec! Made for Bargain Basement Tag.
