DIRECTIONS

  • Write "Mexican Chicken - 400 degrees F for 45 min, then melt cheese on top" on the outside of a Ziploc bag.
  • Place the chicken in a freezer bag.
  • Add all of the ingredients to the freezer bag, except the cheese.
  • Coat the chicken well, squeeze all of the air out of the bag, and freeze.
  • When you are ready to make the chicken, defrost the chicken in the refrigerator for 24 hours (this also marinates the chicken in the salsa).
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (as you have written on your bag, so you wouldn't forget!).
  • Lightly spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Place the chicken in pan, and pour the sauce over the chicken.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes.
  • Sprinkle cheddar cheese on the top, and put back into the oven, until the cheese melts (the broiler would be a good alternative for this step too).
