Here’s a recipe for Salsa Chicken that my family enjoys. I had always made this with a store bought package of taco seasoning, and store bought salsa. I finally tried it with my own versions of taco seasoning and salsa and the recipe turned out great! So here’s the recipe, followed by the links to the Make Your Own versions for the taco seasoning and salsa.
Salsa Chicken Recipe
2 – 4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1/2 packet of Taco Seasoning (about 2 Tbl)
1 cup Salsa
1 cup Shredded Cheese
Place the chicken pieces in a baking dish and sprinkle them with the taco seasoning. Pour the salsa over top. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes (depending on how large your chicken pieces are). Remove from oven and remove foil. Sprinkle cheese over the top and return to the oven (uncovered) for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
This dish tastes good with good served with sour cream. I usually serve this with spanish rice and corn as well to keep the mexican flavor theme going.
I think it’s great to have homemade options like this. If I’m pressed for time, I can still go with the store bought stuff. But if I do have the time, I like knowing there’s a homemade option that can save money.
