Mexican Chicken

Mexican Chicken Dinner

This is one of our favorite easy dinner recipes. It's a twist on Chicken Parmesean in that instead of spagetti sauce it uses salsa. Athough any jared salsa will work, I often make my own roasted red pepper salsa to have as an appetizer and to use with this Mexican Chicken Recipe.

  • 1 jar salsa
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2-3 cups shredded Monteray Jack cheese
