Cheesy Salsa-Chicken Bake

Cheesy Salsa-Chicken Bake

2 TBL Olive Oil
1 lb. Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breasts
Salt & Fresh Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
1 (4 oz.) can sliced mild green Chili's (drained), divided
1 recipe Corn Salsa (recipe follows)
8 oz. Shredded Cheese (Three-cheese or Mexican Blend)

Pre-heat oven to 350..

Heat oil in a non-stick skillet ; rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Season
breasts on both sides with the salt and pepper. Brown chicken on both sides, about two minutes per side.

Spread 1/2 cup (more or less) of the Salsa over the bottom of a 9X13"
oven-safe casserole dish. Lay the breasts side-by-side in the dish. Cover
liberally with 1 1/2 cups of the Salsa. Bake, uncovered, for 20-25
Remove from oven and top with the cheese. Arrange Three-fourths of the
Jalapeno slices on top of the cheese. Return to the oven and bake another
5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and peppers are
heated through.
After plating, arrange the balance of the Jalapeno slices on top .
Heat the balance of the Corn Salsa in the Microwave and offer with the
Chicken Breasts.

Top the dish with crushed Corn Chips or Taco Chips just before serving.

Corn Salsa
2 c. frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/3 c. chopped purple onion
1/4 c. chopped red bell pepper
3 TBL chopped fresh cilantro
2 TBL fresh lime juice
1 to 2 TBL finely chopped Jalapeno
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a small stainless steel mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours. Remove from refrigerator about 30 minutes before using.
Makes about 3 cups

Looks nice and gooey. Bet you could cut the chicken into 1/2"-3/4" chunks, do the recipe and "poor" it over corn chips to make nachos or spread it out on a serving platter and let folks tear pieces of warm tortilla and use them to "grab" up the gooey stuff.

Copy and paste, that looks really good!
