Recipe for one-pot chicken salsa from Teach Eat Repeat

What’s cooking, TeacherPop? This one-pot meal is a weeknight favorite in our house. It is one of those meals that you can whip out when you haven’t visited the grocery store in a slightly embarrassing amount of time. It requires frozen veggies, some chicken breast, and a container of salsa: totally #setitandforget it.

What You’ll Need

-One pound chicken breast

-One bag mixed frozen veggies (pick your favorite!)

-One container salsa (check your labels for sugar!)

-1 tbsp olive oil

-1 tsp crushed red pepper

-salt and pepper to taste

-hot sauce (optional)

salsa chicken recipe

What To Do

  1. Cut the chicken into one inch cubes and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  2. Put olive oil in skillet and heat to medium high.
  3. Cook the chicken, stirring occasionally until cooked through. Remove from heat.
  4. Put the bag of frozen veggies (still frozen) in the skillet. Add about a quarter cup of water. Cover until they are thawed.
  5. When 90% thawed, add salsa.
  6. Turn the heat down and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Add chicken and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  7. Pour into a bowl on its own, on top of rice/cauliflower/lettuce/beans/quinoa/(the list goes on), and top with avocado/cheese/additional salsa/hot sauce.
  8. Try and stop your husband/roommates from requesting this for dinner every night. Good luck with this one!
