I agree this dish was super spicy!! I will make it again but either leaving the chipotle chili's out or not cutting them like the the review below states. Very tasty dish but seriously cleared my sinuses. Guess I should have read the reviews before making the dish.

I chopped the chipolte peppers and it made the dish extremely spicy!! Next time I will keep them whole and then remove them before eating. Everyone's mouth was burning and there were a lot of snifflely noses.

Very tasty dish, simple to make. A bit high in sodium though. unless you like your food very hot, remember to see the chilies!

This was just HOT! No other flavors could be picked up except the chile peppers. My least favorite SL recipe ever and Ihave made hundreds.

This recipe is in my top five recipies of all time! It is so wonderful with tortillas, or pita bread or rice. I vary the heat of the salsa based on the eaters's taste buds, thanks to this (and other) C.L. recipies people think I am a gourmet! :-)

One of the best chicken dishes ever and I didn't add the extra salt. It doesn't need it.

I was doubtful about this recipe because of the jarred salsa, and it was exactly what I didn't like about it. I felt like I took salsa out of the jar and dumped it on top of a boring chicken breast. I won't make this again, and if I did, I'd use fresh tomatoes, cilantro, and some beans in place of the salsa.
