    I like this. It's very tasty and also super easy. I did increase the amount of peppers because I like a lot of veggies with my meat, and also added 4 or 5 hot Thai chilies. Might cut down on those by 1 or 2 next time, but still, this is very good. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

    This was just okay for me. It had okay flavors, but I think it needed something else. Maybe because I am from Texas. It just wasn't spicy enough for me.

    The cilantro sauce is excellent! First time I had leftovers requested as a meal. May try blending in a few more hot peppers next time. I served with yellow saffron rice and it was excellent, thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

    Great Flavor and appearance. The chicken comes out looking a bit like Chicken Mole but one bite tells you Umm Umm this is different but oh so good. I don't think that everyone will enjoy the cilantro flavor but it is a favorite of mine. I used hot peppers a mixture of Jalapeno and serrano nice combo with the cilantro. I made the sauce and browned the chicken early in the PM then cooked it on medium heat covered for apprx 20 minutes just before serving. Thanks RMess for an excellent recipe.
