Cheesy Salsa Chicken

Cheesy chicken with salsa that's sure to please.



  1. Put 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into an 8x8" pan sprayed with olive oil.
  2. Pour one small jar of chunky salsa (like Pace brand or any no sugar added thick salsa) over the chicken.
  3. Bake in 350 °F (175 °C) oven for about 25 minutes, checking occasionally.
  4. Remove the chicken dish and put the sharp cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese variety you like) and some chopped green onions on top and return to oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Top with a dollop of low-fat sour cream when serving, if desired.

I took somebody elses advice and added some cajun spice to the chicken (I make my own mix based on Emerill's Essence). We had our chicken over romaine lettuce, and the differneces in textures, the crunch of the lettuce with the chicken was really good! The whole family liked it, so this one is a keeper... :-D
