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


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


  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.

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.
