Salsa Chicken

Need a simple, delicious dinner idea? Here you go! You're welcome. Actually, you can thank my friend Katy. Mmm. This one is so good. I think I need to make it again this week.
Katy usually serves this with mashed potatoes or rice. I thought it went deliciously with Spaghetti Squash. Do what you wish.

Salsa Chicken
adapted from Katy L.
2 large chicken breasts
1/4 c salsa
1/4 c honey
1/8 c apple cider vinegar
1 tsp mustard
1/8 cup molasses or honey BBQ sauce
4 pieces bacon

Preheat oven to 350°
Combine salsa, honey, vinegar, mustard, and molasses(or BBQ sauce). Fry bacon until brown, but not crispy. Place chicken in a Dutch oven or casserole dish and pour mixture over chicken. Place bacon pieces over chicken(or slice breasts and place bacon inside) and bake in oven until chicken is done(about 30 minutes, depending on thickness). Spoon mixture over chicken every 15 minutes.

*Katy's Tip: For a variation, slice a pocket in the middle of each chicken breast and fill with cheese and pepperoni.

This looks good too. Can't wait to print it. I tried the apricot pork tenderloin my family loved it there were no leftovers. I'll have a picture of it on tomorrow's post.

YUM! I've heard of salsa chicken before, but never have made it. I've bookmarked this so I'll let you know how it goes!
