This easy dish is also hot, spicy, and delicious! I use Goya pico de gallo because I think it's the best of the bottled salsas. When I'm in an industrious mood I use homemade fresh salsa. I serve it with cornbread and a tossed salad.
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried chipotle powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 1⁄2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 (17 5/8 ounce) bottlegoya pico de gallo, salsa
- 6 -8 ounces jalapeno jack cheese, grated
