Grilled Salsa Chicken

To search for the perfect side! This entrée is simple and delicious (plus a bit spicy if you substitute our Medium Salsa). What will you serve with it?

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 16-oz Cedar’s Mild Salsa 
Serves 4 Total 30-60 Minutes

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the olive oil, kosher salt, and teaspoon pepper.
  3. Use the flat side of a meat mallet to pound each chicken breast to an even ½-inch thickness. Add the chicken to the olive oil mixture and toss well to coat.
  4. When the grill is ready, lay the chicken on the hot grill grates and cook, covered, until the chicken has grill marks and the edges turn opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. 
  5. Flip the breasts and continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  6. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. 
  7. Slice each breast crosswise on the diagonal into ½-inch-thick slices. 
  8. Arrange the chicken on a platter and top with Cedar’s Salsa.
