Spice up chicken with this simple lime and jalapeno salsa. With a jar of jalapenos on hand, it is made in minutes. Serve with a green salad or steamed vegetables and it’s a perfect mid-week dinner. When you are cooking the chicken, it will be ready to flip when it starts to come away from the pan. Flip it too early and it will stick.

2. Slice the chicken breasts horizontally into two pieces. Using half the salsa as a marinade, spoon over the chicken, tossing to combine. Leave to sit for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
