    TheDancingCook's Note:

    Another personal South Beach Diet friendly favorite of mine. It's flavorful and easy to throw together, bakes in less than 1 hour. I serve this with a side of my Mexican Jumping Beans. For the taco seasoning, I like to make my own (no sugar added; there are plenty of taco seasoning Zaar recipes to choose from, if you would like to make your own.

      Such a simple recipe but yet SO GOOD. I sprinkled salt on both sides of the chicken, did 4 chicken breasts. Didn't really measure the seasoning I just kept sticking a 1/2 TBL scooper in the package and seasoned both sides of each chicken (so I'm not sure how much I used, probably more than called for but it was tasty!!) and I used about 1/2 a jar of salsa and I did bake it covered with foil so the chicken wouldn't dry out. I think I might add black beans like another user did and fiesta cheese makes this so yummy!!! We had spanish rice and re fried black beans. Thanks!!!

      Very good! I made 3 breasts (cut each in half) and used about 6 oz of salsa total. FYI, the salsa does stay put during cooking (I thought it would all run off), so feel free to use a more expensive salsa that you love because you will be able to taste it! I too baked mine covered for 30 minutes on 375 and it was super juicy but a little tough. Perhaps next time I will try it at 350 for 30-40 minutes and see if that works better. Oh, and I marinated the chicken in a tequila lime marinade for a day too. Thanks for sharing, as we will certainly make these again.

      Easy and tasty. I made my own sugar free taco seasoning and the boys kept asking for more. Thanks for sharing. Only difference I made was to buy thin sliced chicken breast, so it was only 30 minutes total.
