I don't know where I got this recipe from, but recipes are only guidelines for me, so I am not sure if this is the real recipe or my variation of the original. I didn't even know what to call it! I love this dish, and so does my entire family. I serve with Spanish rice or ranch beans and a salad.

  • Arrange chicken in the bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish. Squeeze lime juice over the chicken and season with salt and pepper.

  • Mix salsa and garlic together in a bowl. Spoon 1/4 cup of the salsa mixture over each chicken breast; top with more lime juice.

  • Cook chicken breasts in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 50 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cha Cha Chicken Haiku: "Baking time WAY off. Mine done twenty-five minutes. It needed... something." I bet this chicken would taste fabulous if used in AR's "Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili" not just b/c of the identical names but b/c this particular chicken recipe isn't much of a stand-out on its own. The flavor is subtle enough (I used a heavy hand both w/ the lime juice and the Herdez salsa) that the chicken would be best suited for use in a soup quesadilla salad or what-not. For ease of prep and overall taste I'd hover around a 4 but where it's flawed is the baking time of 50-60 min. No chicken breast half should be subjected to that long of baking and I'm glad that I checked mine at 20ish minutes and found it ready. Read More
