"Hi Clara12; Such a simple recipe to make and it has that nice Salsa/Creamy combination taste. I also love experimenting to make various kinds of chicken recipes. I am recipe developer, author, publisher, distributor, promoter and the ladies gave me a title, "BSG" "Uncle Bill" "
"This is a FABULOUS recipe and soooo easy!!! I used chipotle salsa, which gave it a wonderful smoky taste. I served it over pasta. YUMMY! This is a new favorite!"
"This was so QUICK and EASY and GOOD! I cut my chicken into smaller pieces(in half)The chicken came out nice and tender, could cut it with a fork. I used "medium" heat fiesta style salsa and it was just right for those who dont like alot of "heat". I will use "hot" salsa though when its just for me and DH. I cooked up some plain minute rice mixed with some black beans and the sauce was great over it. This is a great QUICKFIX meal when you don't feel like spending time in the kithen."
"I thought this recipe was great. So easy and delicious. My family really enjoyed it. The sauce was great over rice."
"This was soooo good!! The sauce was delicious! I used 2c. of mild salsa & 2c. of heavy cream, used 2T. of corn starch to thicken sauce. Served on top of rigatoni pasta. Will make again, thanks for the recipe!"
"This made a fabulous Sunday dinner. Some weekends I don't mind spending all Sunday in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove preparing a nice, satisfying, hearty meal. Today was not one of them. This recipe met my needs for something simple yet satisfying and DH agreed. I tweaked it a little using 2 chicken breasts that I quick seared in a scant amount of olive oil and butter. Didn't have heavy cream so substitued Half and Half and reduced it and the salsa just a tad. I also sprinkled a few dashes of Chipotle Tabasco on top of the breasts before gently covering with the sauce. Because of the sear I reduced the cooking temp to 375 and the time to 45 minutes. Topped with fresh cilantro when done and served with Saffron Rice and Brocoli. The chicken was beautiful and the sauce was fantastic. Fabulous dinner and a definite keeper for busy weeknights or company!!! Thanks for posting!"
"This is DH's favorite meal in the world. We use a Chipotle Salsa for a wonderful smokey flavor and either use chicken tenders or cut the chicken breasts into strips before baking for easier serving (this also reduces baking time). Wonderful and I can't recommend it enough!"
"Made it on the stove top by browning the chicken first, adding the salsa and cream, and letting it simmer briskly till the sauce was thick. Very easy. Added a couple teaspoons of dry boullion which brought out the flavors nicely. Also used mango-peach salsa. Dee-lish."
"Awesome recipe and so easy to make. I used chicken parts instead and only used 1 cup each of salsa (Pace medium) and heavy cream. Had to add a little cornstarch towards the end as the sauce was a little thin for me. A definate keeper. Thanks."
"Great, easy recipe. I used chipotle salsa and buttermilk. A keeper, w/lots of possible variations. Thanks for posting!"
"Very easy, delicious recipe. Cooked in cast iron skillet on stove top instead of oven. Total time was about 20 min instead of the hour in the oven. If you like a very thick sauce like pictured, I would either decrease the amount of liquid or simmer longer. I used jar salsa that I had on hand, will try fresh salsa next time for more texture to sauce!"
"Yum......with 1 2/3 cup cream, I thought the fat content was on the high side.... I used a little over a cup of cream style corn, then the rest cream, medium salsa, added cumin and cilantro. I did have to thicken the sauce with a little potato starch.... This is a keeper."
"Wow, yummy! I was a little bored with chicken so chose to cook feta instead. I prepared my own salsa - for a first time, btw:) - dish was divine!!"
"This is a stupidly simple to make dish. I love the fact that it required almost no time to prepare. All I did was to cut the chicken breasts into a few fillets and threw them into the heavy cream and homemade salsa mixture. Served with some mixed spring greens. Yum!"
"So easy and very good. I think it might be better cooked just in the salsa and then sour cream stirred into the end....but this is very good also. Note: if you use half & half, youll have to thicken it a little when finished. I used ultragel."
"I found this and read all the reviews ...almost all excellent...so I tried it and I am on the excellent and wow so simple side....I did change a few things...made my own salsa and fried up the chicken first added garlic, corn and then near the end added extra onion and green peppers...did it all on the stovetop....awesome...thanks for the great idea..."
"Made this tonight with some chicken I had simmered in a skillet with salsa the other day. I mixed the cream and salsa in a sauce pan and let it cook for a little while, then poured it over the two chicken breasts that I had left over. I didn't have quite enough cream, so I used about 1/2 cup of half & half, with a jar of homemade salsa. Served it over rice. My very picky 2 yo son loved it. I will make it again! Update: I made this again, and this time I didn't have any heavy cream, so I used evaprated milk and cooked it as directed. I won't do it that way again. Although it tasted fine, it looked curdled. I had a hard time getting past the way it looked."
"THis recipe sounded so good on paper, but when I made it, I wasn't as impressed. The sauce was good, but seemed to be lacking. I did tweak it, so maybe that is the reason. I doubled the sauce recipe and used peach pineapple chipotle salsa instead of regular. Sounds good, huh. Well, I semi-covered with foil and baked for almost the full hour. I was really excited because this sounds so good. Turns out the family didn't really care for it all that much. The sauce was VERY runny and was missing something. That could be my fault somehow, but not sure. I could try adding bacon or ham to it, or tweaking with some spices, but don't think I will make it again. With as much fat as there is added with the heavy cream, the taste would have to be WAY better for me to make this regularly. Thanks for the recipe though."
"Yummy!! Simple and tasty!"
"Made it with half & half, which was probably my mistake. Not very interesting."
