So, why?                                   

  • This chicken seems like it would be dry but its not!  Moist flavorful, lean protein!
  • Salsa is a good source of antioxidant lycopene
  • So easy and versatile

Notes:

  • The chicken alone (before adding salsa) is very flavorful and moist, I think I will try is as a fajita chicken along with sautéed onions and bell peppers.  Add salsa into the fajita.
  • Use fat free greek yogurt instead of sour cream – its just as satisfying with more protein and no fat
  • Can be an appetizer or makes a meal with a side dish of refried beans or add canned black beans into nachos\tacos
