Santa Fe Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by SGpratt

I found this recipe in one of those Pillsbury cookbooks you can buy at the supermarket checkout stand more than 10 years ago. I'm consolidating all the recipes I liked from those cookbooks here and this one is super easy and delicious. I've made some revisions from the original to reflect my family's taste. Comments are welcome! UPDATE: I've also used pineapple salsa instead of traditional and it added a sweeter taste -- definitely worth a try!

I added onions and topped with guacamole. This was good. Thanks for the recipe.
