This easy-to-make recipe is a great weeknight family dish I threw together, and we enjoyed it a lot. Delicious with rice. Can also be shredded and served with tortillas.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Season chicken breasts all over with salt and black pepper.

    Advertisement
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken breasts in hot oil until browned, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Pour salsa and chicken broth over chicken, bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn chicken over, stir salsa mixture, and continue to simmer until chicken is tender and sauce is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Second time making it sliced chicken lengthwise for more even cooking. Added some chopped onions and peppers. Again delicious! Great recipe to start with and a fun one to play with. This Mom is grateful for a simple quick yet flavorful meal! Read More

It was super easy to make! I added lettuce, sour cream and black beans to the plate! Delish! Will make again! (Would have had rice but that is a food item not available in my area at this time.) Read More

It was awesome! I was expecting it would taste good when I read the recipe but the actual flavor exceeded expectations. While it takes close to an hour to make it is an easy meal to put together. Highly recommended! Read More

I made this just as written, but , when chicken was done, I put a slice of Monterey Jack cheese on each breast, and covered for a minute, or until cheese is melted. I serve it over rice, with a dollop of sour cream. We loved it! Read More
