Easy Taco Salsa Chicken Breasts

Easy Taco Salsa Chicken  Breasts created by Juenessa

This is so easy to make and really good, the recipe may be doubled if desired. If you are in a hurry you may omit browning the chicken first, but I think browning the chicken produces much more flavor, you can even brown the chicken hours in advance or in the morning, refrigerate and then bake later as directed --- don't forget to serve topped with cold sour cream, this is what really makes the chicken!

ingredients

directions

  • Coat each chicken breast with about 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning and a pinch of salt (if using).
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat add in breasts and brown on both sides.
  • Place the brown chicken into a shallow baking dish (I use an 8x8-inch dish for 4 breasts).
  • Pour the salsa over the chicken pieces.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until chicken is done.
  • Remove from oven, and sprinkle with the grated cheddar cheese.
  • Place back in oven, and bake for another 5-6 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve topped with cold sour cream.
  • Delicious!

    Loved it! Very easy, tastes great. I browned them first, and though I've never made this before I can tell that not browning them would not be as good. Agree with other reviewers, sour cream makes this dish, don't forget it! Thanks for a great recipe (:

    WOW! This was really good. I couldn't believe something so simple would be so good! As the past reviewers stated, the sour cream made it. I used fat free sour cream, and it was delicious! Thanks Kittencal!

    We had this for dinner tonight and it is wonderful! I love the combination of all the ingredients. It made for a quick, delicious and juicy chicken dish. Hubby and I agree, the addition of sour cream takes this one over the top! Thanks, Kit.
