Directions

1. To make the salsa Fresca chicken bake: Preheat the oven to 400˚F (200ºC). Chop chicken breasts into small pieces. In a salad bowl, combine tomato, onion, jalapeño, cilantro and lime juice with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

2. Arrange the chicken pieces flat in a large baking dish and season evenly with cumin, garlic, red chili pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Give a quick stir to combine chicken evenly with seasoning. Cover chicken pieces with the diced tomatoes, onion, and jalapeño, then top with shredded mozzarella.

3. Bake the salsa Fresca chicken on the middle rack for 25  – 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink (internal temperature of 165˚F – 74ºC). Garnish the salsa fresca chicken bake with more chopped cilantro, and serve hot with your favorite side dish – like rice, bulgur, cauliflower rice, pasta, tortillas… Enjoy!

Notes:

  • Feel free to add more spices if you like your chicken bake spicier.
  • If you have time, you can marinate chicken with the spice mixture before baking the dish.
