Tortilla Chicken with Peach Salsa

Happy Wednesday - and happy 500th blog post to me!!! I am about to celebrate my second blogiversary and I am so excited to have hit my 500th blog post - and I'm posting on schedule this week so that makes it a little extra sweet!

Today, I'm really excited to share with you my new favorite recipe - tortilla chicken with peach salsa. To be honest, lately I've been in a little bit of a dinner rut. So tired from school each night, we've been ordering in more than usual, or I've been merely dumping marinade over meat and serving it with rice. When I was driving home the other night, I was trying to think of a way to liven up grilled chicken with peach salsa, and I came up with tortilla chicken.

All you need to make this is peach salsa (we use Trader Joe's peach mango salsa - it is incredibly delicious) and tortilla chips. And the chicken. Seriously, that's it - 3 ingredients.

4-5 heaping tablespoons of peach salsa, or 1/4 to 1/2 cup, plus more for garnish
2 cups of tortilla chips
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Then, place the peach salsa in a bowl. Coat each piece of chicken so that it is covered in the liquid salsa. Set aside.

In a food processor, pulse 2 cups of tortilla chips until they turn into finely pulsed crumbs.

Place the crushed tortilla chips on a flat surface and roll each chicken breast in the crushed chip crumbs. The salsa on the chicken will allow the tortilla crumbs to stick to the chicken breast.

Place in a shallow baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. 

Once done, remove from the oven and garnish with a few heaping tablespoons of peach salsa.

I didn't serve this with a side, since the peach salsa is quite filling and it was definitely a satisfying amount of food. I love Trader Joe's and I'm so glad I've been able to find a new way to use my favorite salsa!
