This is a simple recipe which can be increased or decreased as desired for the needed quantity. The amount of heat (spicy flavor) depends on the category of heat in the salsa that you use. This meat is great in all kinds of Mexican dishes.

I have been making this chicken for years now. I usually shredded a Costco rotisserie chicken and add a small can of Hernandez salsa. It is so good! The next day it is even better.
