The Ultimate Chicken Cozumel

The Ultimate Chicken Cozumel created by MarraMamba

I first enjoyed a version of this in a little restaurant in Cozumel on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The combination of salsa and cinnamon gives a zesty tropical taste to everyday chicken! If you can find the currants, they give a special complex flavor to the dish.

    This was a very easy recipe and I actually made it into an OAMC recipe. I mixed everything but the nuts together put it in a zippy bag and froze it. I thawed it in the fridge overnight and cooked it in the microwave to heat it up. We had it on tortillas like tacos. It was a little sweet for my liking so I will have to tweak it a bit. But that is just a personal preferance and does not take away from the recipe itself. Very nice recipe. I will use it again.

    This was easy and pretty good. I made it on the stove instead of the crockpot, and omitted the almonds and oil. Served over quinoa. Thanks for the simple recipe.

    This is a nice, easy recipe with very litle effort. I just did this on the stove top because I don't have a crockpot, and I think it came out just fine. I just cooked things on higher heat for ~5-7 min and then let it simmer uncovered to reduce a bit for ~20 while I made salad/veggies. I did not add the water because my salsa seemed liquidy enough. I rolled the chicken/sauce in tortillas with a bit of sharp cheddar. I resisted adding green olives; some sliced avocado might also be good. But as is, it still made for nice, interesting flavors especially for something so easy. This would also be fun to try with different types of salsa.

    Loved it, except for the nuts. I shredded the chicken at the last 10 mins or so of cooking and served this over rice and the nuts were confusing to my mouth. I kept thinking the rice was undercooked! But overall the flavor was amazing!

    I just had to write and say thank you so much for this recipe!! I made this yesterday exactly as you posted, although I used raisins instead of currents, but it was absolutely delicious!!! My husband Loved it, the kids chowed, and I have to say I was very impressed as well. I work from home, so I could smell it cooking all day, and I just couldn't wait to dive in and try it. I think it had a middle eastern flavor or indian flavor. but it was yummy. sorry, I don't mean to ramble on.... Thank you again for posting, I will be making this again, and again, and again!!
