Here is a quick and easy dinner featuring one of my favourite ingredients, pico de gallo baked with chicken! Pico de gallo (aka salsa fresca) is a fresh tomato salsa that is so amazingly good, especially in the summer with perfectly ripe field tomatoes which are just packed with flavour! This pico do gallo chicken recipe could not be easier! You simply make the pico de gallo, place chicken in a baking pan, cover in the salsa, along with plenty of cheese and bake until the chicken is cooked and the cheese has melted! Yum! Serve by itself or over rice, pasta, etc along with and salad and you have a perfect light summer meal with almost no effort at all!
This salsa fresca baked chicken is such an amazing summer meal!
