"This recipe is from a Pampered Chef party photocopy. I have always read and heard that it is not best practice to cook chicken in the juice that it marinates in, but I did for this recipe, and I'm still alive. It is not ABSOLUTELY necessary to freeze the chicken after combining all the ingredients in the bag - in fact, for my experience, I just took out frozen chicken breasts and defrosted the chicken in the sauce (in the fridge) and made it the very next night. The freezing part is just an option for busy people to have a convenient ready-made meal waiting in the freezer. I served this with cornbread and steamed veggies, but fiesta-style rice might be nice as well."

"This worked great. Such an easy no-fuss recipe to prepare to freeze and to cook when needed. During the last 10 minutes or so (when adding the cheese), I also added a can of black beans (rinsed and drained). So delicious!"
"This had so much flavor. I had marinated the chicken about 12 hours before cooking and it was so tasty. I made the recipe as directed and we all enjoyed it. I did use mild salsa because I don't like things real spicy. Will make again."
"This is so yummy and easy to do. I used mild salsa because of my son. He didn't like even with that. He can be so fussy sometimes. Next time I'll use a spicy salsa for me and DH. The chicken had a really nice taste. And I loved the cheese on top. So yummy all combined. Thanks Greeny :) Made for Holiday tag"
"Thanks for the GREAT recipe! This was SO easy to make and my family gobbled it down! I cooked it the day of (literally threw it all in the pan and into the oven). I omitted the onions and it still was flavorful, juicy, and delicious. I will definitely make this one again and again! Thanks!"
"I made this tonight and it was very good. I used home canned salsa but my salsa isn't very saucey so I added a little water. I will be making this again for sure thanks for posting!"
"Now this one is truly worthy of 5 stars! It's ridiculously easy to make and the chicken came out super moist and tasty. The only change I made was to add 5 cloves of garlic finely minced (because we are garlic hounds). I served it with my Recipe #219690. Thanks for a keeper!"
