Roasted Chicken with Melon Salsa

Now that the season has started classes, evenings are a little busy. The activities that the children do are many: from the practice of sports, to homework and bedtime, so it is very important to organize. Dinner must be quick, easy and full of flavor. So today I bring you a delicious and easy chicken idea. This time, I joined an unexpected ingredient sauce: melon. With the sweetness of the melon and spicy serrano peppers, this meal will delight your entire family. For a less spicy version, uses serrano peppers instead of hot peppers. You all love it!
