This is really simple with only 5 ingredients but tastes great. I usually use breast fillets & just pour the whole jar of salsa over them with the other ingredients then add a little cheese sprinkled over towards the end of baking. Mmmm Mmmm! Recipe from Masterfoods.
- 1 kg chicken piece
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
- 1⁄2 cup chunky salsa
- 2 lemons, sliced into wedges, to serve
- Pre-heat oven to 180.C.
- Combine chicken with all ingredients except lemon wedges in a baking dish.
- Cook for 35-40 mins or until chicken is cooked through.
- Serve with lemon wedges.
I used a hot salasa (and used all the jar). I reduced the oil by half and would consider omitting it completely next time as I don't think it was really necessary. Next time, I'd use fresh corainder to finish rather than the dried parsley-it was easy but I don't think it added anything to the dish. We ate this over pasta with the cheese as suggested and some sour cream. It's a great recipe that has wonderful possibilities.
Wow -- I can't believe that such an absolutely delicious dish like this can be so easy and quick to get into the oven. We all loved the lemony taste and it really brightened up the salsa. The chicken came out moist and tender -- it's a terrific recipe, Mandy, and thanks for posting it!
What is not to like about a recipe that is this easy to put together and tastes good? I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and sprinkled with reduced fat cheddar for the last couple minutes. I served it alongside vegetable rice to make for a yummy and really easy meal. Made for 1-2-3 tag.
