Saucy Mexican Chicken

Last week sticking to my new years goal of trying a new recipe each week I set out to find a chicken recipe that would be quick and simple. I did find a great sounding recipe on the Kraft Canada website called Saucy Mexican Chicken. This recipe said it was to be prepared in one skillet and can be ready in 25 minutes!

Saucy Mexican Chicken

prep time: 25 mins
total time: 25 mins
makes 4 servings

  • 1 lb (450g) boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 jar (454ml) salsa
  • 1 can (540ml) black beans, rinsed
  • 1 cup Kraft Tex Mex Light Shredded Cheese

1. Cook chicken in a non stick skillet on medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side or until browned on both sides.
2. Add salsa and beans. Bring this to a boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until chicken is done (107F)

3. Top with cheese. Remove from heat and let stand, covered for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I cooked some pasta while I was making the chicken, I figured that it would be nice to have the chicken over the pasta. It turned out really good and it was very quick and simple to make without messing too many dishes. You can also substitute the salsa with 1 undrained can (454 mL) no-salt-added diced tomatoes and add 1 tsp. dried oregano and 1 tsp. of basil.
