    Absolutely delicious and aroma is enticing. Used it on boneless chicken breast, marinated for 1.5 hours in refrigerator. Came out so delicious. Family loved it too. Easy to make and unbelievably scrumptious.

    Great with chicken or pork. Makes a delicous chicken taco. The BEST. Only problem is finding it. Live in south suburbs of Chicago and have not seen it at Jewel, Walts or Walmart in a year!! Whats up with that?????

    This stuff is AMAZING. I agree with Lauren, if you discontinue this I will lose my mind also. SO many people demand the "recipe" when I cook it for them or take it to parties!! I usually cube the chicken up and serve over white rice. I'll toss it in the pan, with the lid, on medium-high until almost done, then remove the lid with 5-10 minutes left and turn it up to high to "caramelize" the flavors in. I like it lightly seared. It's SO delicious.
