Pico De Gallo Chicken!

Pico De Gallo Chicken
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Mrs. Dash's Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
  • Pico De Gallo
  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts

I used a prepared pico de gallo from Wal-Mart (Marketside brand) found in the produce section.  You can make your own, it's very simple.  I will post the recipe for it at the end of this post!

  • Start by heating the oven to 375 deg.
  • Lightly brush olive oil over chicken.
  • Sprinkle Sea Salt to taste

  • Sprinkle Mrs. Dash seasoning. The more you sprinkle, the spicier it will be.

  • Bake in oven about 25-35 min. depending on the thickness of the breasts.  Juices will run clear when done.

I also cooked some organic brown rice (found at where else, Wal-Mart) with dinner, and a side of steamed spinach. 
When the spinach was done, I added some Light Balsamic Vinegar and mixed well.

To plate the dinner, I first put the desired amount of rice on plate, then the chicken on top....and topped the chicken with the Pico De Gallo.
Spinach with balsamic vinegar on the side.

Super Simple Homemade Pico De Gallo

Equal parts of:
  • Roma tomatoes , chopped
  • Onion, chopped
  • Cilantro, chopped
Then add in:
  • Chopped jalapenos, 1 or 2 (scrape out membrane and seeds, unless you like it HOT)
Mix all 4 ingredients well, then squeeze in juice from
  • half of a lime
Sprinkle with
  • Salt

The kids loved this meal, they were topping the chicken with extra pico de gallo and ate most of the spinach...which is a huge achievement in itself!
Anytime I can come up with a healthy meal that the kids will not only eat, but goes in my "keeper" recipe binder.  The boys told me this one was a "keeper"!!
