    • 2-3 cups of shredded cooked chicken
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 1 cup chopped onion
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 cup salsa
    • 1/3 cup golden raisins
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • Fresh cilantro sprigs (optional)
    • 2-3 cups hot steamed rice
    • Chopped tomatoes, lettuce

    Place chicken in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.

    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

    Add onion, and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Add chicken, cumin, salt, cinnamon, and garlic, and cook for 3 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring frequently. Stir in salsa and raisins.

    Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.Stir in Cilantro and serve over hot rice, the top with chopped lettuce and tomatoes.


    My family loves this recipe. The raisins and almonds appeal to the kids (though they tend to try to pick out the tomato bits from the salsa) and the flavors fit together really well. Excellent!
