    Awesome recipe and so easy to make. I used chicken parts instead and only used 1 cup each of salsa (Pace medium) and heavy cream. Had to add a little cornstarch towards the end as the sauce was a little thin for me. A definate keeper. Thanks.

    This was soooo good!! The sauce was delicious! I used 2c. of mild salsa & 2c. of heavy cream, used 2T. of corn starch to thicken sauce. Served on top of rigatoni pasta. Will make again, thanks for the recipe!

    Hi Clara12; Such a simple recipe to make and it has that nice Salsa/Creamy combination taste. I also love experimenting to make various kinds of chicken recipes. I am recipe developer, author, publisher, distributor, promoter and the ladies gave me a title, “BSG” “Uncle Bill”

    So easy and so good. I've made this a few times. The second time I mixed up rice and chicken broth and put that on the bottom, then added this recipe right on top of it. Worked out great and reduced cleanup!

    This made a fabulous Sunday dinner. Some weekends I don’t mind spending all Sunday in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove preparing a nice, satisfying, hearty meal. Today was not one of them. This recipe met my needs for something simple yet satisfying and DH agreed. I tweaked it a little using 2 chicken breasts that I quick seared in a scant amount of olive oil and butter. Didn’t have heavy cream so substitued Half and Half and reduced it and the salsa just a tad. I also sprinkled a few dashes of Chipotle Tabasco on top of the breasts before gently covering with the sauce. Because of the sear I reduced the cooking temp to 375 and the time to 45 minutes. Topped with fresh cilantro when done and served with Saffron Rice and Brocoli. The chicken was beautiful and the sauce was fantastic. Fabulous dinner and a definite keeper for busy weeknights or company!!! Thanks for posting!

    I thought this recipe was great. So easy and delicious. My family really enjoyed it. The sauce was great over rice.

    This is a FABULOUS recipe and soooo easy!!! I used chipotle salsa, which gave it a wonderful smoky taste. I served it over pasta. YUMMY! This is a new favorite!

    This was so QUICK and EASY and GOOD! I cut my chicken into smaller pieces(in half)The chicken came out nice and tender, could cut it with a fork. I used “medium” heat fiesta style salsa and it was just right for those who dont like alot of “heat”. I will use “hot” salsa though when its just for me and DH. I cooked up some plain minute rice mixed with some black beans and the sauce was great over it. This is a great QUICKFIX meal when you don’t feel like spending time in the kithen.

    Made it on the stove top by browning the chicken first, adding the salsa and cream, and letting it simmer briskly till the sauce was thick. Very easy. Added a couple teaspoons of dry boullion which brought out the flavors nicely. Also used mango-peach salsa. Dee-lish.

    This is DH’s favorite meal in the world. We use a Chipotle Salsa for a wonderful smokey flavor and either use chicken tenders or cut the chicken breasts into strips before baking for easier serving (this also reduces baking time). Wonderful and I can’t recommend it enough!
