Total Time

A mere four minute preparation is all for this quick, tasty dish with a delicate Mexican flavor. It is so good that my wife and kids asked for seconds. I hope that your family enjoys this simple creation! I make this contribution in thanks for all the great RecipeZarr meals I have enjoyed.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 lbs chicken tenders (boneless, skinless)
  • 1 12 cups salsa (I prefer Mild Pace Chunky Picante)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Arrange the chicken in a single layer in a skillet.
  2. Pour salsa evenly over the top.
  3. Cover tightly with foil.
  4. Cook on low/medium for 35 minutes or until chicken is done.
  5. Plate chicken pieces with a scoop of the salsa on top.
  6. Sprinkle generously with Cheddar cheese (cheese can be sprinkled on top five minutes before removing from the skillet).

This was good and easy to make. I made this and let it sit for about two hours before serving. This really made the flavor draw through the meat. We all enjoyed this. I didn't wrap with foil but put a lid on the pan.
