“As a retired senior citizen with a working husband, I have to make easy dinners for two,” notes Dorothy Storms of Winder, Georgia. “These grilled chicken breasts topped with zippy cheese and salsa are a favorite.”

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 slices pepper Jack cheese (3/4 ounce each)
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • Hot cooked egg noodles, optional


  1. Brush chicken with oil; sprinkle with seasoned pepper and garlic powder. Grill on an indoor grill coated with cooking spray for 4-5 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  2. Transfer chicken to serving plates; top with cheese and salsa. Serve with noodles if desired.
