Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pounds (680 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast
  2. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) oil

Cooking Instructions

Pound the chicken breasts to inch (1.

Place a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil, and saute the chicken breasts for about 5 minutes or until the bottom is golden.

Turn and saute for another 3 to 4 minutes.

Top the chicken with the cheese, turn the heat down to medium-low, cover the skillet, and let the whole thing cook for another 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

While the cheese is melting, put the salsa in a microwaveable dish and cook it for a minute at 50 percent power.

Remove the chicken to serving plates, top with the salsa, and serve.

You could add a dollop of sour cream if you like or maybe some chopped fresh cilantro, but it's not really necessary.
