This was good way to use up some leftover chicken,but it just wasn't spicy enough for our tastes. Maybe if this is made again,I'll add some more chili powder to "kick It up" "Keep Smiling Amy:)"
This was so easy to make. I cooked two chicken breast in the crockpot yesterday. Today I made rice in the rice cooker to use for this recipe and have on hand. Everyone enjoyed your recipe Redneck, so it will be made again and again. Thanks so much for posting it.
