Chips and Salsa Chicken

When I saw this recipe on Favorite Family recipes I figured it would be a slam dunk with my hubby. See, he loves chips and salsa. He could live off of it I swear. Anyway, he didn't really care for it. Said he felt like he was eating chips and salsa and not chicken, I on the other hand loved it. I thought it was tasty. Go figure. It was a little different and I wish I had some guacamole to go with it. So, if your looking for something different, give it a try.

Chips and Salsa Chicken
from Favorite Family recipes

3 Tbsp. lime juice
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. honey
4 chicken breasts, halved
1 c. finely crushed tortilla chips
1 bottle of your favorite chunky salsa
1 c. shredded Monterey Jack Cheese (I only had cheddar, so I used it)
Sour cream
Fresh cilantro

Combine lime juice, honey, and oil. Dip chicken in lime juice mixture then coat with crushed chips. Place in ungreased 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until juices run clear. Spoon a tablespoon or two of salsa over each chicken piece and sprinkle with Cheese, bake for 20 more minutes or until the cheese melts.
Serve with guacamole and sour cream and garnish with fresh cilantro.
