    Becky in Wisconsin's Note:

    This is such a simple dish to make. No measuring needed. Just add the ingredients to your liking. I have made this with Spanish Rice before and it is great, or just plain rice works too. Refried Beans, complete the menu.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Flatten Chicken Breasts so they are of equal thickness for even cooking.
    2. 2
      In stir-fry skillet or any deep frying pan (with lid), heat your Olive Oil.
    3. 3
      Add the Chicken Breasts and brown on both sides until no longer pink inside.
    4. 4
      Pour over salsa to your liking. I use about a half a 16 oz. jar. I also add a little water to tone down the heat, (hubby can't handle spice).
    5. 5
      Cover and simmer chicken in salsa for about half-hour to 45 minutes.
    6. 6
      Top with cheese to serve.

      I also make a version of this, using Pace! The only thing I do differently is roast an ear of corn and some zucchini under the broiler, rough chop the zucchini,cut the kernels off and add both near the end of the cooking time. The roasted corn adds a bit of sweetness and color. I serve with white or brown rice and cilantro, and of course grated cheddar! Delish and healthy!

      This was good and easy to make. I followed the ingredients but I made this in the oven. We enjoyed it for dinner.

      So simple and so good! I used Pace salsa, monterey jack cheese, and added some green onions and a dollop of sour cream. Thanks Becky for such an easy and tasty dinner. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
