Made this yesterday. It was tasty and relatively easy. Would make it again. I doubled the amount of cumin and added added fresh chopped onions and garlic to the saute before adding the canned diced tomatoes. Skipped the cheese and broiling step altogether (doesn't need any cheese). Served it over a small pile of pasta. (There was enough sauce from the saute to accommodate the pasta.)
Cumin-Spiced Chicken with Chunky Tomato Sauce
Bright green cilantro tops this cumin-spiced chicken with an extra dimension of flavor. Round out the meal with Chili-Lime Corn on the Cob.
Prep: 2 minutes; Cook: 15 minutes
