Salsa Chicken

About this recipe: This dish was created the day after we had had a party and had lots of food left over, in particular a big pot of salsa! It's very quick and easy to make and we now make or buy salsa just to make this dish.

Serves: 2 

  • 1 pot of tomato salsa
  • 2 chicken breasts

Ive tried this twice now (I realy wanted it to work!), once with left over salsa from a party and once with old el paso salsa bought especially. Both times; the result was lifeless, tasteless chicken. Sorry for the bad review - 28 Dec 2009


Thanks for this recipe - I've cooked this a number of times with great results that the family love. I often add some chopped onions (depending on how oniony the salsa is) and black beans, and melt grated cheddar cheese on top. Also, I tend to do it on the stove-top, caramelizing the chicken a bit first. Usually just serve with a simple tomato, spring onion and coriander (cilantro) salad with lime or lemon juice and garlic bread or homemade flour tortillas. - 08 Jul 2013
