When I first saw the title for this Salsa Chicken recipe on All Recipes, I cringed just a bit. It doesn’t sound like it will be the greatest thing in the world, but you know what? It turned out to be pretty great, with potential to really knock it out of the park. Better yet, it’s amazingly simple to put together and only involves five ingredients. I also picked up a Goya Chicken Flavor Mexican Rice and made that to go along with it.
All you really need is chicken breasts, a jar of salsa, taco seasoning, cheese and sour cream. You get the oven going at 375, put the chicken in a baking dish and then mix in the seasoning and salsa. Pop that in the oven for 25-35 minutes, pull out to add cheese and then place back in the oven for a few more minutes. Pull out and serve with sour cream. Bingo bango.
The flavors really worked well together, didn’t take too much actual work and didn’t require me to stand in a hot kitchen during the summer heat. What I like even better is that you can really have some fun with this and make it even more homemade. I haven’t landed on a taco seasoning recipe I like just yet, but once I do, I’m going to switch over to that instead of buying stuff. I’m also looking to make my own salsa, which is another way to really mix up the flavors. In addition to just eating this as is, you could also shred it up and serve with tacos! I like that kind of versatility and intend to come back to this after finding a good salsa recipe.
