    Great easy way to make chicken, although I did it even more basic. I just put the chicken (3 breasts) in a glass baking dish coated with spray, and covered with the salsa. Topped dish with tin foil. Baked to the right temp inside and then topped with a little mozzarella. Will definitely make again. - 11/1/08

    This came out great! I put them on a bed of spinach leaves, as someone suggested, put a little pepper & garlic powder on each breast, then topped them with black beans, salsa, olives and red bell pepper slices (I was out of jalepenos). In the oven for an hour at 400 degrees per recipe & was perfect - 12/21/09

    Nix the foil, used a pyrex with a lid. Left out the olives and peppers. The chicken was tender and tasty, baked at 350 for 40 min. I'll try cheeze on it next time! Yum. - 4/5/08

    This was great! I used a 1lbs pack with 3 breasts, filled them with a little Monterey Jack with Jalapenos, topped each with Salsa and a dash of Mexican Cheese and off into the oven.
    The chicken was super moist and tasty. I served it with brown rice that I had fried with onions and bell pepper. - 10/13/07

    This is such an easy dinner and all you need is a jar of salsa and chicken breasts. I have made it twice now and both times the chicken was very tender and tastey. - 3/19/07

    I've made this for years. I do it in the crock pot. There are dozens of variations you can make: onions, shredded cheese, tortillia chips, guacamole, sour cream (low fat), cilantro, etc.
    And it always works and it always seems like you really did a lot more! - 3/21/10

    I LOVE this!! It is SO easy and quick, and tastes SO good! This is perfect for dinner when I don't have a lot of time to cook anything (which is about every night!). I just use the chicken and salsa, and it's PERFECT! - 5/19/09

    I make this all the time. However, I cut down on the cook time in the oven and leave off the peppers. I also will use the same techinque with spaghetti sauce and cheese for baked chicken parm. - 4/10/08

    I really liked this dish. I also did not use the peppers or olives. I did use spicy salsa, which gave it flavor. I also sprinkled chicken with chili powder before topping with the salsa. Thanks for the great recipe! - 2/27/08

    Tasty, but a couple of observations: foil should not be used with acidic foods like salsa, it is reactive and can actually be dissolved by the acid; this recipe should call for 1/2 a chicken breast, as a whole one would be all the breast meat from one chicken; one hour is too long, 30-45 min is good - 1/13/08
