Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this last year and didn't like it. I made this last year and didn't like it. It was too bland. I decided to give it another try with some changes. I used boneless thighs because they come out more moist. I used a whole packet of taco season. I used frozen pepper and onion stir fry mix and a can of black beans. I also used a medium heat salsa and 1/4 cup of medium heat peach salsa. I served it over saffron rice. It was so much better the second time around. I will be making this again.

All of us loved it - even the kids. I also had some extra drumsticks, so I dredged them in the flour mixture and threw them on top of everything & that was a big hit. I made a double batch on Saturday - today is Wednesday and it is nearly gone. I will have to make this again for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I sliced the chicken and added garlic which helped add a little more flavor. I sliced the chicken and added garlic which helped add a little more flavor. After cooking, I break apart the chicken so it's almost a shredded texture and serve it in tortillas or in tostada bowls with some sour cream and guacamole - almost like a Mexican Gumbo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe. Great recipe. Only left chicken and sauce in for about 4 1/2 hours on low because I used chicken tenders. Also added red & green peppers halfway into the cooking process so they weren't overcooked. Added a couple cloves of garlic. Delicious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was excellent! This was excellent! My husband, who doesn't like to try new things actually loved this one. Thanks Kraft for this keeper. Now if you could just give me back the old style recipe box where I could sort and comment on them I'd be a happy camper!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This was kinda blah. This was kinda blah. I made it and put it over rice the first night. My husband actually asked me not to make it again! It wasn't bad when we put the leftovers in soft tortilla shells. It needs something, just not sure what.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made it tonight! Made it tonight! super easy and affordable, plus the family loved it! This will become a regular dish for us! I couldn't get the Tacobell Thick 'N Chunky Salsa, but used another brand and the dish came out packed with flavor!
