Recipe by  

"This is very easy to make. A friend of mine got the recipe from a friend of hers.... It's called 'spicy chicken,' but it is mild enough to serve it to children."

This was good. Very easy if you don't feel like making dinner. I served it over rice and it made a great meal.

The tastes was OK - not great. My husband wouldn't even eat it so, it's not worth trying to fix up for the future.

This is excellent! I made this tonight, got rave reviews from the family and it will now be part of the regular chicken recipe rotation at my house. Thank you thank you to the creator of this wonderful dish!

This is an excellent and simple to prepare meal! I adjusted the salsa / dressing mix to 1:1 (because I like mine a little spicier) and added some shredded cheese over the top of it. Also served over rice and everyone so far has really liked it! Thanks much!

We loved it. So easy to make. I did have to change the french dressing to ranch because I did not have french. It tasted wonderful. Will make again

This is a great easy recipe. I make this at least every other week!

I was worried about the combination of these ingredients, but it turned out great. Next time I will use more salsa (personal taste). Pound chicken before, otherwise chicken can be a little tough.

I made this a while ago and I keep forgetting to review it! It is so fast and easy to make and the chicken comes out extremely moist and tender. I didn't change a thing and it was delicious.
