Fiesta Chicken

"Fast, Fast, Fast- This dish takes less than 30 minutes start to finish. My DS loves it. Left over chicken can be used to reduce cooking time even further. We sometimes prepare this with angel hair pasta in place of the spaghetti."

    Muy bien! We had this as our entree for our Mexican-themed dinner at home, and it was a huge hit with everyone in my family. It has just the right amount of "heat", and was just packed with flavor. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. (But I bet it would be great over plain white rice, too.) Thanks for sharing your recipe, Brenda. Made for ZWT5.

In all honesty it is because I tend to choose recipes based on ingredients and prep that I am familiar or comfortable with. If something just didn't work out for me I will leave a review with no stars and admit it was probably an error made on my end. I need to be a little more adventurous as a few recipes I thought would be "just ok" totally blew me away with how delicious they were. <b>My nephew RyGuy has joined the site as an aspiring young chef.
