    This is a modified, lightened version of a recipe that I got from a friend. I cut out more than half the fat, but it is still really rich and yummy.

      I really enjoyed this recipe. It is very flavorful, even using the lightened ingredients. I used 1lb. of 99% lean ground turkey in place of the chicken. Thanks for sharing. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

      I have made this recipe three times and every time it comes out perfect. The first time I made it I followed the directions without changing anything. It was awesome. The second time I didn't have fresh cilantro, but had dried, so I used that instead. I didn't notice any differance in taste. The third time I also used the dried cilantro. I found that using dried cilantro, I always had all the ingredients on hand. This makes for a quick last minute dinner. I put rice in the microwave to cook when I put the dish in the oven. They finish cooking about the same time and dinner is ready with little effort. I have recieved many compliments from company and family on this dish and have passed along the recipe.
