Easy Gluten-Free Dinner

On vacation last week, I accidentally re-discovered a healthy cooked treasure, and it's gluten-free.

Salsa Chicken

I was making fajitas, and didn't have my normal spice cabinet to pull from to season the meat, and felt it needed something.  (my spice cabinet at home:)

 I spied a huge jar of salsa that I knew we wouldn't eat, and began to cook.  And the delicious result reminded me that one of the 1st "real" meals I made often when cooking on my own was salsa chicken.

And so, here, my friends, is an easy, healthy, gluten-free dinner recipe.  Sometimes I get so caught up in cooking and experimenting that I forget that simplicity has its own beauty.

Salsa Chicken
3-4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1/4 cup salsa for each chicken breast
2 cups brown rice

Heat a skillet with a tiny amount of oil in it, just to make it non-stick.  Add chicken breasts and pour salsa on top.  Cook, flipping once one side is done, until chicken is cooked through.  Meanwhile, cook rice in a separate pan.  Serve rice under chicken & salsa, with a salad.


  1. I love this--I have been making it for years. I usually add the rice and a cup of water to the pan, and cook until the rice is done. One pan, easy delicious meal. Gluten free. Yay!

  2. Easy is always good... I can't believe I had forgotten it!
