Here's an easy and yummy chicken recipe - experiment with different flavors of salsa to see what you like best (I found that raspberry salsa was quite tasty)!

This turned out to be a very quick easy dinner tonight. It didn't take very long to cook as I used turkey breast steaks instead of chicken. I was also very late starting dinner tonight so I didn't measure just guessed quantities but it still worked out very well - probably had quite a bit more cheese, which I love. I will be making this again. Thank you Bunkie for a great recipe.
