    Wow! This chicken dish is absolutely delicious. The fruit salsa adds a sweet and tangy taste to the chicken. I served this at a baby shower and all of the guests begged for the recipe.  -  23 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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 tsting dish - but due to the somewhat exotic ingredients, and the length of time to put together, I don't see myself making it again.  -  31 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I attented a luau the other weekend and made this salsa and served with tortillas chips. It makes a TON and was quite a hit. No need to squeeze OJ and lime juice though. Just buy some! I also diced up some jalepenos for some added kick!  -  03 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
