I used to make this quite often when I was still single because it is so easy to make. You can easily adapt this for 1 person or for 20 people. It used to be one of my favorite things to make and I’m not quite sure why I stopped making it. I guess there’s just so many new things out there I’ve wanted to try this one happened to fall to the way side. I saw it on The Baking Beauties yesterday and remembered what a tasty dish it is. It’s something that’s quick to make during the week after working a long day. I will be putting this back into the meal rotation for sure!
Printable Version: Salsa Chicken
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- 4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
- Place chicken breasts in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle taco seasoning on both sides of chicken breasts, and pour salsa over all. (I like to put the taco seasoning in a zip-loc bag, and toss the chicken until it’s coated with the seasoning)
- Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juicy and its juices run clear.
- Sprinkle chicken evenly with cheese, and continue baking for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with sour cream if desired, and serve.
