Perfect for guests or family meals, this chicken is full of color and flavor. The simple sauce is tasty over pork chops, too. Some mornings, I put the ingredients in the slow cooker.—Patty Burk, Nanaimo, British Columbia

"This is a quick and easy recipe. I used diced tomatoes with chilies instead of salsa and added about a tablespoon of lime juice to give it a little more acid. It has a nice subtle kick to it and is great served over white rice."
