5 Ingredient Tropical Salsa Chicken for #SundaySupper

Tropical Salsa Chicken Recipe via Kudos Kitchen By Renee

What do you get when you combine chicken thighs, prepared mango peach salsa, lime juice, ground cumin and coconut? You get my delicious and easy five ingredient Tropical Salsa Chicken… That’s what!

This week’s #SundaySupper is all about 5 ingredient or less recipes and truth told, sometimes I find that cooking with fewer ingredients is more difficult than cooking with an array of ingredients at your disposal. I also find that sometimes it takes a whole lot more creativity to come up with something tasty when you are working with fewer ingredients.

That said this recipe for Tropical Salsa Chicken was one I developed on a whim after I happened upon a jar of prepared mango and peach salsa at the grocery store, and I began running recipe scenarios around in my head in the International aisle of the super market (other than the shower, the grocery store is the place where I do my best thinking. LOL).

Tropical Salsa Chicken Recipe via Kudos Kitchen By Renee

Serves: 4-6      Prep Time: 5 minutes     Bake Time: 35 minutes

8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 limes
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 cups prepared mango peach salsa
1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Place the chicken in a baking dish that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.
-Cut and squeeze the lime juice equally over each chicken thigh. *Note – to get more juice from the limes, press and roll the limes on the counter before cutting and juicing. Allow the chicken to sit for 10 minutes.
-Season each chicken thigh with salt, pepper and the ground cumin.
-Spoon the prepared salsa evenly over the chicken thighs.
-Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.
-Remove the chicken from the oven and sprinkle the coconut over top of each thigh.
-Return to the oven and continue baking for 5 minutes longer, or just until the coconut starts to brown.
-Serve immediately.
