Dunk your Chicken Breast halves in your Egg/Olive Oil mix and then put them in a baking dish. Pour your dry mix on top of your Chicken Breasts and then flip your Chicken Breasts around a few times. Sprinkle your Cheese over the top. Spoon your Salsa over the top. Bake on 400°F/204°C for 30:00-35:00. Enjoy!
