Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 cup salsa (I used medium, but mild or spicy would work too, depending on your taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon parsley finely chopped, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º Fahrenheit.

  2. Place cream cheese and salsa in a small, heavy-weight saucepan. Place over low heat and cook, stirring frequently, until cream cheese melts and combines with the salsa. Stir in sea salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

  3. Arrange chicken breasts in a baking dish. Pour prepared cream cheese sauce overtop, covering the breasts. 

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until center of chicken breasts reach 180º Fahrenheit. Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley, if desired, before serving.
