Fire Roasted Yellow Pepper Salsa Chicken

For me, one of the most satisfying feelings is knowing that I finished something. When I know that I was able to commit and do my best to make it all the way to the end. Sometimes this feeling can be achieved when finishing a book, a workout, or in my case, an entire jar of salsa. I used to open ingredients that only needed to be used for one recipe and then it would just sit in the back of my refrigerator until it went bad and I had to throw it away. Such a waste!

This happened to me recently when I opened a jar of Cucina & Amore Fire Roasted Yellow Pepper Salsa to enjoy for my chip-dipping pleasure. Unfortunately, I was unable to finish the whole jar by myself. I had a foodie-inspiration, since I loved the salsa so much and wanted to make sure to finish it, but was all out of tortilla chips. I decided to use it as a topping/marinade for my baked chicken dinner. It was super simple and delicious and I was able to finish the rest of the jar. The salsa certainly hit the spot, both to my tastebuds and to my non-wasteful satisfaction.

The most unique feature of this salsa is that there are NO TOMATOES! It’s made with whole yellow peppers, sunflower oil, salt, vinegar, spices, garlic powder, garlic, potato starch and citric acid. AND THAT’S IT!
