Expert Tips

To broil, place chicken on broiler pan and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times provided above as a guide.

Salsa is the Mexican word for "sauce." The sauces--either fresh or cooked--may consist of chopped vegetables, fruits or both, and seasonings that lend a hot, mild, sweet or tart taste. One ingredient is common to most salsas: chiles.

Use nectarines or plums in place of the peaches.
