I just make a Cherry Salsa and I fell in love with it. And even though I was more than happy to eat it either plain or with corn chips, I decided to try something else with it. This to me is more of a shared idea than a recipe. I don’t think there is anything here that even the newest foodie would be enlightened by :) BUT, it was so fabulous tasting that I had to pass it one. It even earned a spot in my chicken dishes VIP room. Well… it would have. If something that ridiculous actually existed :P

Cherry Salsa Glazed Chicken

1 chicken breast
3/4 cup of cherry salsa
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon corn starch


Cut the chicken breast into 1 to 2 inch pieces, all about equal in thickness. Put the chicken breast in a small bowl and pour the cherry salsa over it. (If you’ve had cherry salsa in the fridge for a day or two, it will have more liquid in it than before; use as much of that as you can.) Let it marinate. It’s up to you how long you want it to sit, I lasted about 20 minutes before I couldn’t take the waiting anymore :)

In a medium skillet, add the oil and let it heat up. Add the chicken with all the salsa once the pan is warm. It should take just over ten minutes to cook through properly. At that time, sprinkle the tablespoon of corn starch over the liquid in the pan and mix it in well. It will thicken quickly, so be on your toes! About a minute after you’ve added the cornstarch the chicken should be ready to be removed from the pan.

I ate mine with a side of plain quinoa and its was pretty heavenly.
