Healthy Recipe- Salsa Chicken

I had some chicken that I needed to use, and my friend Ann suggested this recipe, which I modified a bit (mostly because I didn't have a mallet to flatten the chicken). It's yummy, quick, and with a green salad and a piece of garlic bread, it makes a great meal. It can be mild or really spicy, depending on your brand of salsa.

Salsa Chicken

4 bonless skinless chicken breasts, cut into large chunks

1 tbsp olive oil


1 cup salsa (any kind- check the calories and carbs, my brand was 105 calories a cup and 15 gr of carb)

1/4 cup shredded mozarella cheese

1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 6 minutes. Spice to taste (I use a combo of Johnny's Salt, Garlic Salt, and Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy). Reduce heat, add salsa, and simmer until the chicken is done (another 5-7 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken chunks). Top with shredded cheese and allow it to melt.
