Our family would eat Mexican food every day if we could, and this recipe is a favorite! Chicken breasts stay moist and tender topped with salsa, cilantro and cheese.—Juline Goelzer, Arroyo Grande, California


  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound)
  • 1 cup finely crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) salsa
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the lime juice, oil and honey. Dip chicken in lime juice mixture, then coat with tortilla chips. Place in an ungreased 11x7-in. baking dish.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes or until juices run clear. Combine salsa and cilantro; pour over chicken. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5-7 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
