I'm so excited to share my Easy Mexican Salsa Chicken recipe with you, it's a recipe that totally reminds me of home and childhood. My mom was a working mom during all of my childhood, but she still managed to have dinner on the table at least 5 days a week. She is a truly a wonder woman, and ever since I was a child, I knew I wanted to be just like her. She's also a dynamo in the kitchen, and she definitely inspired my love for cooking. My mother taught me to cook at the age of 11, and ever since then I've been hooked, so for that, I'm eternally grateful.

Now, I spend my days sharing my passion with my gorgeous 5 year old niece Aubrielle, who's proven to be quite a chef in the kitchen.

As young as one year old, she would hang out on kitchen counter and help me stir. She's always eager to help, and she has a real passion for the kitchen. Now at age five, I find her taking over more and more of the prep work as we cook together. Her favorite recipes include anything involving cupcakes, cookies, chocolate or chicken. This Easy Mexican Salsa Chicken is one of her most frequent requests whenever she comes over to visit.

Each year on April 30th, Día del Niño, or Day of the Child, is a festive holiday celebrated across Mexico and in many Latin American countries to honor and appreciate children. It's a time for communities to come together to hold special events for children and to remember the joys of childhood. I had never heard of the Holiday before this year but as a aunt, I fully embrace the idea of it! Sharing food with my niece is one of the joys of my life, and this recipe is perfect for the children (and adults!) in your life. My Easy Mexican Salsa Chicken is a perfect dish for little ones to prepare because it's so easy to make, so it's a great choice to make in celebration of Día del Niño.
