Recipe by Laura from Tampa Bay

This is a flexible and easy chicken recipe that can be modified to your taste or ingredients you have on hand. I prefer to use 3 chicken breasts with 3 thighs. Depending on how spicy you like it, you can use mild, medium or hot tomatoes (the hot ones are VERY hot.) I use homemade taco seasoning from one of the several recipes found on this site instead of store bought. Sometimes I serve over cilantro lime rice, several recipes also found on this site.
