  • 4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese (shredded)


  • Filet your chicken breasts so they are thinner. I like to do this because your chicken ends up with more flavor and they cook faster.
  • In skillet, drizzle some oil and heat over med/high heat.
  • Place the chicken breasts in there and let them brown really well. About 3 minutes.
  • Flip them and allow them to brown again. Another 3 minutes.
  • Once they are brown, poor in the salsa and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat.
  • Cook for 10 minutes until the salsa has reduced and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Serve with shredded cheese on top.


This recipe is extremely frugal. Our dinner to feed our family of six cost us less than $5!
