Ey Ey Ey Chicken

This was my "What's Cooking" chat room inspired Chicken Dish. I gave my Fellow nesties the mission of what should i make with Chicken, Limes, Tomatoes, and a Jalapeño and boy did they come through! they totally inspired me to make a Mexican party in my kitchen! And i have to say it wasn't bad! Quite yummy actually... next time though i think I'm going to try to give it more kick!

3 boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1-2 shots of Tequila (depending on how you're feeling!~)
1 tsp of cilantro (more if you have fresh, i didn't~)
1 tbsp of lime juice
some zest of a lime (not too much)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4ish tsp of cumin
1/4sh tsp basil
1/4 c chopped tomato
1 tbsp chopped jalapeño
1/4 c chopped onion

Fresh Salsa (amounts depend on quantity you want to make)
2 Tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 jalapeño seeded and chopped
1/2 onion chopped
1 tsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

reduced fat Mexican shredded cheese

Take the first nine the chicken ingredients and cook in a large skillet over medium heat until chicken is at least half way cooked. Then add final three ingredients and cook until chicken is fully cooked.

Take chicken breast and put on plate, top with as much cheese as you would like and then top with Salsa and enjoy!
