I decided to marinate some chicken in salsa the other day in order to hopefully come out with a perfectly moist chicken with lots of flavor. That..didn't happen. The problem with the salsa lay in the inability for the marinade to soak into the meat. It really just sat on top and flavored the top. This marinade WOULD work if you added a little lime juice maybe a dash of oil--or you could just baste your chicken with salsa and serve it with salsa on the side. But now you know if you're looking for a fast salsa-soaked dinner this is not the one.
The chicken was cooked perfectly though and had a nice light flavor--just not as much as I was imagining in my dreams.
