    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (12 ounce) jar salsa
    • 1 (8 ounce) jar apricot preserves or 1 (8 ounce) jar peach preserves
    • 6 chicken tenderloins (unbreaded)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      cook chicken until it is done, boiling is quicker. ( may also use chicken with the bone in & skin on but will need to boil until cooked through then clean & seperate, for this method use either 4 thighs or 2 breasts).(use more chicken if feeding more than 3 persons, and increase amounts of salsa & preserves to make up the difference).
    2. 2
      next add all the ingredients into a sauce pan and mix together, stirring frequently on med/high heat until boiling & slightly thickened. Remove from heat & let sit 4-5 minutes to let thicken more, then serve over rice or noodles & enjoy!
    3. 3
      hot & spicy salsa gives a nice kick to this dish, try it you'll like it!

      I have always known this recipe as "South of the Border Dump Chicken". Since this dish has no asian taste to it. This is also a great recipe to use with pork country style ribs or even pork chops. I usually serve with spanish rice and green salad. This recipe also works great on the grill. To make it a little more spicy, you can use hot salsa or add a pinch of cayanne pepper to it.
