    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

    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

    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
