Simple Salsa Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Bec6206

Ok, so this can serve 10 people, if each person only has one piece, but I'm thinking it will fit 5 people perfectly. This recipe was scaled down from quite a high number, so feel free to add more seasonings, sauce or cheese if desired. Also, you can top with sour cream when serving.

This is so easy and comes out a taste treat - I used a couple of thighs and a couple of breasts and cut the recipe back accordingly. Takes minutes to put together and then it minds itself until the last addition of the salsa & cheddar. I did add a dollop of Light sour cream served with Patty Pan Squash, Carrots & Green Beans Thanks Bec for posting
