Easy, tasty meal with a kick to it. One of our favorites!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place uncooked chicken in the bottom of a 9 x 7 inch or similar size Pyrex dish. Cover chicken with the bag of shredded cheese. Pour the jar of picante sauce over the chicken and cheese evenly. Add water (I use the picante jar to get remaining sauce out).
Bake 1 hour uncovered.
Serve over rice. Yummy! :)

I've been experimenting with using spices along with the cheese and salsa but I truly like your simple idea of just using cheese and salsa! I am giving a thumbs up but I hope you don't mind if I suggest baking time only needs to be around 25 to 30 minutes for this amount of chicken 'parts' at 350 degrees. You'll have much more juicy and tender chicken breasts (or thighs, wings, etc) if you reduce the baking time. If this amount of time worries you just check with a meat thermometer at 25 minutes and as long as the chicken is 165 degrees you're good and safe to go. :-)
Great idea! I took the idea and made some changes. I replaced the chicken with pork loin, then went ahead and used pepper jack cheese with a sauce of jalepeno peppers and tomatillos. mmmmm it was good. Thanks, at the end of the month, it's whatever is in the fridge.

Combine sauce ingredients, and add onions. Butter 9x13 inch casserole dish. Layer tortillas, chicken, cheese, and sauce. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.

This is an easy recipe that even a novice cook can make. It is my husband's favorite. The best part is it is inexpensive to make and has only 4 ingredients.
Brown the chicken breasts in a frying pan that has a lid in a small amount of oil.
After the chicken is brown, add the entire jar of salsa and the black beans.
Cover pan and let the chicken simmer until cooked through (should take about 10-15 minutes).
Turn off burner and put shredded cheddar cheese on top of the chicken and recover). Let sit till the cheese melts and serve.
You can serve with rice or whatever you choose.
My husband likes it just like it is and usually he eats most of it by himself.

This recipe is excellent. I found the exact recipe in a Kraft magazine. I also add corn. Yum! (02/28/2010)
Boil 1 chicken, remove meat from bones and dice. Saute one medium size onion (chopped) and one green pepper (chopped).
Mix everything together and put in 9x13 inch pan. Bake about 25 minutes at 350 degrees F.
