Recipe by LARavenscroft

This is a recipe that I found on ChefMD. A quick & easy stove top chicken recipe. I served this with oven roasted potatoes and asparagus.

Extraordinarily easy. Excellent with addition of rice and refried black beans. Did add some extra white onion and a clove of garlic with the salsa to great effect...awesome for a college student on a budget with rudimentary kitchen skills! 4 stars only because while strongly flavored, a bit one-dimensional and a little too tomato-ey.
