Salsa Chicken

Today's recipe comes from my cousin, Sheena, and was pronounced quite possibly the "best chicken you've ever made, mom" by LiviGirl. I have to agree. This will be a family favorite from now on. Not only is it DELICIOUS, but it's super simple to make as well. 

(*I took some pics of the finished dish, but this is one of those dishes that just doesn't look that pretty even though it tastes amazing.  I didn't want to scare anyone off by what it looks like, so I decided against using the pic.)

Sheena's Salsa Chicken

1/2 oz taco seasoning mix (half of the reg. 1 oz. pkg)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1lb total)
1 cup salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar (I used Kroger Mexican shredded cheese)
1 Tbsp. sour cream, optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place taco seasoning mix & chicken in a ziplock bag & shake to coat, then place chicken in baking dish. Pour salsa over the top.

Cover with foil & bake for 20 min or until chicken is tender & cooked through.

Remove foil, sprinkle chicken with cheese & continue baking until cheese is melted, another 3-5 min. Top with sour cream.


This recipe makes 4 servings & only costs approx. $1.72 to make. I would highly recommend doubling it, because you're gonna want seconds (& leftovers)'s THAT good! 

Big "Thank You" to Sheena for giving our same ol' same ol' chicken a spicin' up!
