Used different ingredients. This was excellent chicken but time consuming. Not great for children but great for adults! I didn't have rum on hand but used tequila instead, it was a great combonation with the lime and coriander. If your looking for a rewarding dish, this is it! - 18 Jul 2008


Wow! This chicken dish is absolutely delicious. The fruit salsa adds a sweet and tangy taste to the chicken. I served this at a party and all of the guests wanted the recipe. - 18 Jul 2008


I had extra mangos and limes - and was looking for a good recipe to use them - and this hit the spot. It was time consuming to make - especially with the fresh squeezed juices. It was a nice tasting dish - but due to the length of time to put together, I don't see myself making it again. - 18 Jul 2008
