Cha - Cha - Cha - Chicken

What do you make in a hurry?  We all have them.  The nights when the chicken is almost past its prime, when you need to eat quickly, when you have an extra jar of salsa hanging around in pantry.  What?  You don't always have an extra jar of salsa hanging around in your pantry?   My mistake - after trying this recipe you will want to.  :)

Here is a FAST and EASY recipe perfect for a yummy meal on an evening when time is short. I call it...

Salsa Chicken

To make this you need:

Chicken breasts - as many as you can fit in your pan and/or as many as you need
salsa, 12 oz. - any type you like, bottle, jar, container, whatever
olive oil - or whatever oil you like to use

That's it.

Here is how you make Salsa Chicken.

Dry the chicken breasts with paper towels.  (This helps with the browning.)  Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a frying pan until shimmering.  Brown the chicken breasts on both sides.

Turn down the heat to medium low, add the salsa, cover, and simmer until the chicken breasts are cooked through (about 10 minutes). 

add the salsa

cover the pan

lower the heat to medium-low

Here is the finished pan!  Can't you just smell it?  No? What? Why not?  Oh, yeah right.  Silly me.  Trust me, it smells delicious!
