This received rave reviews on the Lowcarb Friends forum so I had to give it a try. Although it is definitely not bad tasting, it isn't anything exciting. A piece of grilled chicken breast topped with salsa, cheese, and sour cream would be much simpler and at least as tasty. I topped my serving with some shredded lettuce and a spoonful of salsa. I had wanted to have some guacamole with it and I think it would greatly improve the taste, but avocados were expensive this week and didn't look very nice. I also thought that the chicken would be way overcooked and tough after 55 minutes, but it really wasn't too bad. I guess the tomatoes must have tenderized it a bit.
