    Notes

    If you do not have pico de gallo or salsa, mix together some cilantro, 2 diced plum tomatoes, chopped jalapeno, minced onion, and lime juice instead.

    Also, you could do this in the slow cooker; I don't use that because I don't like the texture of chicken breasts when slow-cooked.
