Salsa Chicken

 

Total Time: 25 mins

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar salsa (your choice of heat)
  • 1 (12 ounce) can Diet Coke (DO NOT SUBSTITUTE ON THIS ITEM)
  • 1 lime, juice of, fresh squeezed

Directions

  1. In 12 inch skillet, cook chicken over medium high heat in UNSEASONED pan (do NOT spray with PAM or add any oil or butter).
  2. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Chicken will stick a bit to skillet when turning but that is ok.
  4. Cook till just brown- you want a bit of color.
  5. Add the entire jar of Salsa and the can of Diet Coke.
  6. Reduce heat to medium low- and simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes, covered.
  7. Remove lid, turn chicken and continue to simmer until sauce has thickened to desired consistency.
  8. When ready to serve, squeeze juice from 1 fresh lime over the chicken.
  9. I serve this over yellow rice (I just add turmeric to my rice when cooking- adds nice bright yellow color!).
  10. Do not use regular Coke as this will turn out too sweet.
  11. I promise–you cannot taste the Diet Coke.
