    I made this for the first time yesterday. And we all loved it.  -  18 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! I used 4 chicken breasts and doubled the seasoning. I didn’t use quite as much vegetable oil as called for. I baked for 20 minutes then broiled for 2 minuets. I didn’t have any cilantro or lime on hand but I did lightly drizzle with reconstituted lemon juice after it was done baking. Served with Spanish rice, sour cream & cheese. My 16 year old said it was “divine”  -  13 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made it just as described. Served on little tortillas. Great easy weeknight dinner.  -  03 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
