Easy Creamy Salsa Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Shelley Lee

This is a quick weeknight recipe with only a few ingredients but lots of possibilities. Goes together quickly, then in the oven while you prepare sides and garnish. We poured the salsa chicken over jasmine rice in homemade baked tortilla bowls, garnished with shredded cheddar cheese. Yummy! Can be served with Spanish rice, garnished with cheese, black olives and green onions! Endless!
