Very good and easy. Served with a side of Spanish rice for a low-effort but flavorful dinner. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT.

Followed your recipe pretty much, but did slice the breasts crosswise so that no pieces were longer than about 3" or so! Then I used the baked salsa chicken as filling for homemade sourdough buns, & had an OUTSTANDING meal! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
