This is a delicious spin on the traditional salsa chicken! It is made with pumpkin salsa and topped with melted cheese to create a meal that is not only easy, using only a couple of ingredients, but a fan favorite as well!
Make sure there to have a batch of the Chunky Pumpkin Salsa (or Pumpkin Salsa of your choice) before starting.
Heat stove top to medium high and place large saute pan on hot stove top. Allow to heat up 3-4 minutes. Pour in the 2 tbsp of olive oil and it should smoke. Place the 4 chicken breasts on the hot oil and cook for 4-7 minutes each side.
While the chicken is cooking in the pan, pour 1/2 of Chunky Pumpkin Salsa in a baking dish.
When chicken has been browned on both sides (it will not be finished cooking), place on top of the salsa. Top with remaining salsa. Bake for 25-35 minutes at 375 degrees.
Once the internal temerature of the chicken has reached near 165 degrees. Top with the cheese of choice and cook for an additional 5 minutes so cheese has a chance to melt and become gooey. Removce from oven.
Sprinkle chopped parsley on top of chicken and serve over rice, noodles or on its own.
