    Fabulous recipe! The chicken was done in exactly 20 min., with a crunchy outside and tender inside. I loved the flavor of the chicken and could eat it like that by itself. The tomato sauce was really nice. I did add a bit of salt and pepper. I might skip the cilantro next time (or use less). I'm tucking this into my best of 2015 file because we eat bnl/snl chicken breasts a lot and I'm always looking for different ways. This one is a winner. Made for Culinary Quest 2 - Tex-Mex.

    These were great! Not a fan of cilantro, I used more jalepeno for more heat. Nice, crunchy Tex-Mex chicken. Served with beans, rice, big salad with ranch dressing.

    Great dish! I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. I've always loved Tex-Mex food, but I've never cooked it at home. Now I'm hooked, I'll definitely be looking for more Tex-Mex recipes. The salsa was delicious. I'll definitely be making it and the whole dish again!

    Very tasty! I skipped the jalapeno, but the fresh cilantro/tomato sauce was yummy! Will definently make this again.

    I made this last night for company. I didn't use all of the jalapano called for as my girlfriend doesn't like things too spicy. The men said they liked the chicken, but the sauce was okay. They thought it could use less cilantro and more jalapanos. I thought it was really good-and my girlfriend said it was too spicy! (was there any winninig in this situation?)I am going to try it again with a bit of adaptation-either the recipe or who I share it with! Thanks for sharing!
