I remember the first time i made this easy recipe for Salsa Chicken, It’s so simple that you really don’t even need a recipe! I’ve got one here for you anyways, though.

It’s basically some chicken breasts sprinkled with a little spices and baked with salsa and cheese. Garnished with some green onions for a prettier presentation, if you wish!

The chicken comes out moist, tender and full of flavor's. You can control the spice by using a mild salsa. I love spicy, but some of my family doesn’t so we usually stick to the mild kind. It’s a delicious weeknight meal for when you are short on time. Your oven pretty much does all the hard work. Dis dish is quick and easy


Preheat the oven to 375F.

Trim any excess fat from the chicken breasts and then lay them flat in a single layer in a baking dish.

Sprinkle the taco seasoning evenly over the chicken breasts then pour the salsa over the top of the dish and cover with cheese.

Bake on the middle rack in the oven for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.

Serve hot over rice, greens, cauliflower rice, tortillas, or potatoes. Garnish with fresh cilantro and sour cream for an extra delicious touch!
