Scrumptious quick chicken dish. I had lots of ginger and a jar of pineapple salsa that I couldn't decide what to do with and here we are!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a plastic freezer bag, or between 2 sheets of plastic wrap, pound each halved chicken breast until about 1/4 inch thickness.
  2. (It helps to sprinkle the chicken or the plastic wrap with a little water so you don't tear the meat).
  3. Mix together the flour, pepper, ginger, and salt on a shallow dish.
  4. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mix to coat.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a sautee pan over medium heat.
  6. Place 1 breast at a time in the pan and cook about 3 minutes per side, or until the meat feels firm.
  7. Keep chicken in a covered dish to warm until all the chicken is finished cooking.
  8. Add the broth to the pan slowly.
  9. The pan will steam up so be careful.
  10. Deglaze the pan by gently scraping up any browned bits and let the liquid simmer for about 5 minutes until reduced slightly.
  11. Add your salsa and stir until you have a nice thick sauce.
  12. It will come out to be a bit brownish in color.
  13. Take the pre-cooked chicken breasts and place back into the pan and reduce heat to medium-low.
  14. Turn chicken once after 2 minutes and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  15. Remove chicken from pan and serve with 2-3 Tblsp of sauce over each breast.

Made for Healthy Choices 2008 ABC (May) Tag Game. This was not quite as sweet as I would have expected it to be. The chicken broth over powered the salsa flavor. I will play around with this using less chicken broth and some spices because it was so easy and I like easy dishes.
