Salsa Chicken

by sunshine on November 11, 2008

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!

Salsa Chicken

Printable Version: Salsa Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  2. 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)
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juicy and its juices run clear.
  4. 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.

It serves as many as you want it to. I've made it with as few as two chicken breasts to as many as 10. Just use the amount of chicken breasts as the amount of servings you want (I hope that makes sense!)

I made this recipe and served it over spanish rice with tostitos on the side and my family loved it. I melted shredded monterrey jack / cheddar cheese over the chicken. It is a fst and easy meal to make.
