I agree with Snoopy 1960 - the crockpot is your friend!

You are a busy guy !!

Maybe you can invest in a small crockpot. Put your ingredients in and let it cook all day.
They sell ones with timers too.

I could not live without mine. 3 kids, 1 husband , 1 job and a very needy dog LOL
I got to save time whenever I can .

Oh I will, I just thought the tomatoes where super bland. If I would've known I'd had the taco packet I would have done that. I started the chicken on the stove with the intent of adding soy/teriyaki sauce and throwing minute rice in there, but then a taco packet litterally fell out of the cupboard so I used that and threw in half a can of beans.

Don't have the copious amounts of italian seasoning I'd need to turn plain tomatoes into flavorful enough. Will be picking up another thing of dried italian mix soon

You probably could have made the chicken the way you planned only used the tomatoes instead of salsa and added some spice, like your taco packet....or italian seasoning...sorry my suggestion is late, but you may want to keep it in mind for next time.

Well its too late, but I was looking for something with quite a bit less effort than that. What I ended up doing was dicing my chicken, adding half a packet of taco seasoning and half a can of black beans and simmering it a while. Even that was frustrating becuase it meant I had to be at the stove stirring once in a while (Got 3 exams I was needing to study for) the idea to just throw whole breasts into the oven smothered in salsa was about all I had time for. was so close to just ordering delivery, but then I would have eaten a whole pizza out of rage with the way the studying was going

I like to make Italian chicken.

Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and sauté in a bit of olive oil.

When chicken is done, take out of the pan and keep warm

Cut up 1 green pepper, 1 onion and as much garlic as you like.

Sauté the veggies in a bit of olive oil until soft, add back the chicken and the can of tomatoes with the juice.

Add a heaping tablespoon of basil . serve over pasta or brown rice.

So, in the box of canned goods my grandma sent me, I thought there was some homemade salsa in there. I was planning on doing an easy salsa chicken in the oven where I just cover a breast in a cup of salsa and let the oven do its work since I'm gonna be busy tonight, but what can I do with this giant jar of tomatoes with the consistency of chunky salsa and my 2 thawed breasts that would be similar?
