We know that fresh, boneless, skinless, chicken breasts are the base of a quick & easy healthy chicken meal.
But you say you’re tired of oh so boring, dry, flavorless chicken?
Liven up those chicken breasts by using the Marinade Express to infuse flavor, variety, and excitement into your everyday meals.
MX Santa Fe Salsa marinade adds just the right amount of spicy and lots of extra flavor.
And the extra moisture and shortened cooking time offered by marinating in the Marinade Express helps to keep those chicken breasts from becoming dry while cooking.
- Fresh boneless chicken breasts.
- MX Santa Fe Salsa Marinade
Marinate your boneless, skinless, chicken breasts with MX Santa Fe Salsa marinade for 20 minutes.
Remove from the Marinade Express drum, and season with salt if desired. (remember, MX Marinades add no salt to your food)
Heat your grill or skillet and grill the Santa Fe Salsa chicken breasts on both sides over medium heat until done, an internal temperature of 170 degrees is desired.
Approximately 5-7 minutes per side. The time needed will vary by the size and thickness of the chicken. Very thick chicken breasts will benefit from pounding/flattening prior to marinating.
Remove from heat and set aside, lightly covered with foil, for 5-10 minutes before slicing or serving.
- This recipe is great with any vegetable and pasta or potato for a quick, healthy chicken meat that actually tastes great and is juicy.
- Your stomach will ask for more so make extra.
- The leftovers taste great cold or reheated!
- Slice up the leftover breast for a super tasty salad with Santa Fe Salsa Chicken.
- Or use them reheated in fajitas.
Optional Oven finish method:
Grill/Sauté your MX marinated chicken breasts until lightly browned on both sides.
Remove from heat and place in an oven safe cooking dish and finish in your oven, pre heated to 350 degrees, for approximately 20 minutes or until internal temperature is about 165- 170 degrees. The time needed may vary by the size and thickness of the chicken.
Remove from oven and set aside to rest and retail juiciness, lightly covered with foil, for 5-10 minutes before serving and or slicing.
