Three ingredients combine to smother chicken in a savory mexican inspired chicken recipe. Topped with salsa and cheese, plain chicken breasts get kicked up quite a few notches. Serve with rice and tortilla chips for a hearty meal. 

Mexican Chicken Ingredients:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa
1 (16 ounce) package Monterey jack cheese
 

 

Directions:

1. In a 9×13 pan, cover the chicken breasts with the salsa.

3. Cover each chicken breast with Monterey jack cheese.
