Made this yesterday and it came out well. Filleting the chicken is the messiest and most time consuming part. I used a Ziplock bag to coat chicken with the taco seasoning. Much faster and easier to shake them up in there, but took more like 2/3 to 3/4 the packet instead of half. Cooked the chicken for about 23 minutes before adding the cheese for two more. I used a finely grated taco blend (Mexican) cheese. Served with Bush’s already seasoned Black Beans Fiesta and light sour cream. Got everything except the beans for Aldi, so super savings. May just try with regular black beans next time and one stop shop there. Hubby loved it and gobbled up leftovers today. Will make again. Thanks, Carrie!
- 3 chicken breasts
- 1/2 package taco seasoning
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 cup shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
Spray a 9X13 baking pan with non stick cooking spray.
Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise so you have 6 thin chicken breasts. Place chicken in a single layer in the baking dish.
Sprinkle chicken with taco seasoning. Pour salsa over chicken. I used medium salsa and it was not too spicy for my little ones.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until juices run clear.
Sprinkle with cheese (I used colby jack) and bake an additional 3 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted.
This Healthy Chicken Salsa Recipe is a super easy salsa chicken dinner.
I made this for dinner last night and it was delicious! We don’t use the oven much (live in our RV) so I made it in our waterless cookware and it looked and tasted perfect. ?
