What's For Dinner Tonight?

Tip: You can serve the chicken with a side of frozen vegetables or rice and corn tortilla chips and you have a delicious meal in 10 minutes or less.

Salsa Chicken Recipe:

4 frozen chicken breast halves (6 ounces each), thawed, skinned, and boned

½ cup frozen defatted chicken stock, thawed

1 cup of frozen minced onions

1 cup frozen sliced carrots

1 large tomato, chopped

1 teaspoon minced garlic

¼ cup salsa

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


Place each chicken breast between 2 sheets of wax paper. With a meat mallet or the side of a cleaver, pound to 1/4" thickness.
Coat a 10" no-stick skillet with no-stick spray and place over medium-high heat until hot. Add the chicken. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn the pieces. Add the stock and bring to a boil.
Add the onions, carrots, tomatoes, garlic, salsa, and pepper. Cover and cook for 3 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Check by inserting the tip of a sharp knife into 1 piece. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Cover and cook for 1 minute, or until the Parmesan starts to melt.

*Only 255.9 calories and 42.9 grams of protein. Sounds like a perfect dinner choice to me!

Invite some friends over and open a nice vino! :)
