Tried this recipe tonight on boneless, skinless chicken breast and veggies on the side. Such great flavor! It was so good that I prepared more chicken for the rest of the week to eat on pita and corn tortillas! This will surely be a “go-to” recipe in my arsenal from now on. Can’t wait to try more recipes here.
