Absolutely great! We like moist chicken and this one is! And the taste is not like any other chicken I've ever had.....very good. Thanks.

Did not have any cotija cheese, so substituted a hard dry cheese that I had on hand. Forgot to put the shredded monterey jack on and it was still very good. Will keep in my favorites file!

4.5 Stars: This was different and very good. I served with the broken pasta found in the Hispanic section. My husband suggested a rice/pasta mix for a little more texture. All in all, a surprisingly good (and easy) dish.
