  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Colby jack cheese


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Less-Sodium Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic minced
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons mild salsa
  • 1 Tablespoon low-fat 1% milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley


  • 6 ounces tomato diced
  • 4 ounces white onion minced
  • 1 Tablespoon jalapeño diced
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Place chicken in a gallon-sized resealable bag. In a small bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients then pour into bag, seal and store in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).
  • Meanwhile, whisk all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Combine all pico ingredients in a separate bowl. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • After chicken has marinated, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat a nonstick oven-safe skillet (I use cast iron) over medium-high heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Add chicken to the skillet, discarding marinade, and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown on the outside.
  • Top the chicken with cream sauce and shredded cheese and place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from oven and top with pico before serving

    RUN DON’T WALK. Fiancé and I LOVED this and went back for seconds. Served with roasted broccoli and brown rice. Total game changer! The only thing I would do next time I make this is brine the chicken first. SO SO GOOD. Will make again!
