I would suggest crunchy tortilla strips as a garnish, but not necessary. Overall this was slammin. I am planning to make some more of these salads in your article. How fun!………” — Charise

Not a huge fan of chicken thighs but figured I’d give it a try anyways. Wanted to make exactly and give a fair review. So glad I did. EXCELLENT! I don’t think the breast would be aso juicy or flavorful if I substituted them.
I LOVE your recipes. Only complaint I have is I didn’t find you sooner………” — Patricia

A quick note: Thank YOU! Without you, there would be no Cafe Delites.

I pinch myself daily that this is my job and I get to do something I love so much, interact with some incredible people, and share what I love to do with YOU. BUT! I especially love when you come back to tell me about a recipe….wherever you choose to keep in touch! Please keep your comments coming! I appreciate every.single.one.
