    yummy! The chicken was in the marinade maybe 1 hour. The chicken breasts were so tender. The taste is amazing. Perfect. Thanks WI Cheesehead :) Made for 123 Hit Wonders

    I've always wondered what to do with that Salsa Seasoning. I didn't care for it as dressing, but love this chicken marinade. Wonderful spicy flavor and fantastic.

    I made this today. This was good tangy/spicy. I did not have the Penzey's salsa seasoining mix, but I did go online to find out what was in their salsa seasoning. I had most of the "heat" in my cupboard. The regular ortega taco seasoning, was not going to be up to my tastebuds on it's own. I ground up some dried chilis: pasilla, guajuillo, ancho, cumin seeds, mexican oregano with the taco seasoning. I also added lime/lemon juice/zest. Marinated overnight & grilled the chicken on my stovetop grill. Just delicious over salad greens. Thanks for posting this..many repeats.

    We loved this chicken! I marinated 4 chicken breasts for about 45 minutes and cooked them on my stove-top grill. The combination of flavors was perfect--wouldn't change a thing. Thanks, WI Cheesehead!


I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
