    Nice dish. The salsa was very refreshing, but i felt it needed just a pinch of salt. I only had an orange pepper on hand, so used it. Used my grill pan and then finished in the oven. Worked very well. :)

    Such a great grilled chicken recipe. The chicken was easy and had good flavor. The best part was the salsa. I loved the combination of ingredients! Delicious!! I I used 1/4 t. red pepper flakes and it seemed to be just enough for our liking. I will keep the salsa recipe in mind to make on its own. Yummy!

    OMG - the Salsa! Delicious! Cant's say enough about it. It's fresh, healthy and totally addictive. The chicken was nicely seasoned and tasty, too, but the salsa really was the star of this show. Definitely a 5-star recipe for inspired use of the contest ingredients. Good luck, chef.

    I used 4 wings and 4 legs to make this. The marinated chicken was fine but the salsa was the star of the show! My son ate nearly half of it with tortilla chips while the chicken was grilling. I loved the grapefruit and avocado in it. I'm definitely going to make this great salsa often. Thanks for sharing a true keeper. Good luck in the contest.
