    Hi STEELER! Just wanted to say, if you don't want to use the crockpot, this is DEFINITELY delicious baked in the oven. I use the crockpot sometimes for 'convenience' and to have it ready earlier since I work ... but honestly, tossing it in the oven for an hour or so is just as easy & yummier.

    Very good. Used 1 Tbsp brown sugar twin with 1 Tbsp brown mustard with salsa. Only used 5 chicken breasts and amount of salsa was just right. Will definitely make this again with real sugar next time since calorie diff is small. - 8/15/08

    My kids were VERY happy with this meal, and I enjoyed it too! I chose the oven receipe. I think I would use chicken tenders next time instead of chicken breasts, or increase the amount of salsa by maybe another 1/2 jar if I'm using chk. breasts. I think Spanish rice would enhance the dish too. - 2/19/08
