Delsuita's Chicken

"Delsuita was the name of my maid growing up abroad, and she always used to make this dish. Suffering from a pang of nostalgia, I asked my mom for the recipe, and couldn't have been more pleased at how easy it is!"

HEY I'm the first to rate this! You talk about healthy! I used 2 T. lime juice, 1 1/2 lbs. boneless breasts, chopped the pepper & onion, & cut the tomatoes into wedges. Trying to do the low carb thing & my whole family loved it. Easy, too.

This was good and possibly make it again one day. I liked the tangy flavor, but not out of this world.

Family loved it. Did not use ketchup.

I didn't have fresh tomatoes, so used a can of diced tomatoes, drained. The flavor was good, but didn't notice a huge change from the average "chicken" flavor from the marinade. Sure smelled good while it was marinating though.

The chicken turned out well, but I think I used too much tomato (out of a can). I mixed it with rice, though, which was a good idea to cut down on the soupyness.

This is very good! It ends up being more of a soup, so you may want to keep the pieces of chicken smaller so you don't have to cut them up while you eat.

It was very good. I would marinate it longer next time. I also added 2 tbsp of cayenne pepper and a 1 tbsp of brown sugar. Our family loves spicy foods. Overall it was good.
