This is husband and I really enjoyed this dish!! Only changes were less cilantro in the salsa, and i added green onions and red bell peppers. I cooked the chicken in a frying pan which i think worked great! I loved how colourful the salsas was!! YUM!!!

The chicken was good on its own, and the salsa was okay, but I usually love meat with fruit salsa. This salsa just didn't do it for me. The flavors didn't come together well.

This chicken had a great flavor. I marinated the chicken longer than intended,overnight and then through the next day, and it was great. My only complaint was that I felt like the pineapple salsa called for too much cilantro. I used a couple of tablespoons and that was plenty, as it has such a strong taste. Served this with a caribbean rice mix and it was a great tropical flavored dish.

This was the best chicken I've had in a long time. Use a dozen skinless, boneless thighs. also added a chopeed green pepper to salsa. Yum!!

Easy, delicious marinated grilled chicken. I only had 1-2 hours to marinate the chicken, and it still came out delicious. Interesting side note, the chicken tastes good on it's own, the salsa tastes good (but it's not the kind of salsa to eat on it's own as a side, it's meant to be a topping on the chicken). But when you take a bite of the chicken topped with salsa together....YUM! Everyone in the family, including the cilantro-hater, LOVED this recipe. Definitely a keeper!

This is an AWESOME recipe. The sauce makes the chicken. I used olive oil instead of sesame oil and vegetable oil and served over a bed of jasmine rice. HIGHLY recommend

This dish was simple to make and very tasty. The salsa was awesome. I didn't add as much cilantro. Very nice dish, will definately make again.
