Great recipe! Used leftovers (there weren't many) as a topping for nachos with olives and sharp cheddar and queso fresco for football day, aka. Sunday.

Good, great potential -- I think the quality of this recipe is VERY dependent upon the type of salsa used. I used a salsa that is great with chips, but maybe wasn't thick enough to give this dish a thicker, more tomato flavor that could have improved it. I think next time I might also add chile powder and a squeeze of lime. We ate the chicken on corn tortillas, topped with a mixture of avocado-tomato-lime, with a side of refried black beans. Yummy.

I love this recipe! I use it often, great for weeknights, or a quick company dish. I serve it over white rice with black beans and cilantro as suggested with the original recipe in the mag. I also try to use a salsa with beans and corn and very big pepper chunks. Gives it more body. Unless you're counting calories, there's no need to stick to the single cup of salsa.

I didn't like the idea of ground chicken going in my blender (don't have a food processor), so I grilled the chicken on the Foreman grill then shredded it. Served with yellow rice with peas.

This is a satisfying dinner that won't break your budget. Served with rice and black beans, it's a quick and very easy dish that's full of flavor. We used ground turkey instead of chicken has someone had suggested and it turned out wonderfully.

This is good. Real good. Entertaining idea: keep warm in a crock pot, have bowls with lettuce leaves, chopped tomato, sour cream, whatever, and Voila. Mexican Lettuce Wraps! (yea.) The almonds give this dish has a wonderful texture, and the cinnamon/raisin/cilantro/salsa combo creates a unique and fresh flavor. This has become a classic recipe in my arsenal.

Hubby made this for dinner, it was wonderful. The cinnamon and cumin compliment each other well. We enjoy our food spicy so he used some good hot salsa. Served with brown rice and swiss chard from our garden. Looking forward to leftovers.

I loved this after a few additions. I found it to be a bit bland as is. So I added a little cayenne, chili powder, and a more cilantro topped of course with a few squirts of Sriracha. And I'd have to agree about using the proper salsa a thicker salsa would've been better than the one I used. But all in all the recipe was really good and I plan on making it again.

Wow. I was skeptical about this recipe but I'm so glad I tried it. Great flavor combination. I served it with hot tortillas and Tiger hot sauce. Sides of black beans/rice & salad. Delicious.

Really good and easy. I highly suggests using the fresh tub of salsa from the deli section of the grocery instead of bottled. I even picked up a tub of salsa from my favorite Mexican restaurant one time that made it fantastic! It's hard to eat just a cup of this so the serving of 4 doesn't ring true for us, I usually fix one and a half times if there are three of us eating.

very tasty. excellent with the black beans and rice and almost better the next day. Used a pretty spicy and fresh salsa from the deli section so didn't really need to amp up the flavors. Had chicken breast so ground it in the food processor but can't see why you couldn't just use ground chicken or even turkey if that's what you had on hand.

My family loves this recipe. The raisins and almonds appeal to the kids (though they tend to try to pick out the tomato bits from the salsa) and the flavors fit together really well. Excellent!
