Baked chicken salsa
This is perhaps the easiest dinner you will ever make, seriously!! It almost seems like a non-cooking night when you make this because it only takes 5 mins of your time to prepare. My tip would be to not cut the chicken too thick as it will take longer to cook so keep your breasts reasonably thin - approx 1cm. It is only a light meal so serve with a side salad & crunchy bread.
BAKED SALSA CHICKEN
2-3 large chicken breast fillets
2 Tbspn taco seasoning
300g jar salsa
½ cup sour cream to serve
Spray a deep ovenproof dish with oil (approx. 20cm x 30cm).
Slice the chicken breasts into half, lengthways to approx. 1cm thick. Place chicken into dish in a single layer.
Sprinkle over taco seasoning.
Pour salsa over the top. Cover with foil & cook immediately or refrigerate until required.
When ready to cook, preheat oven to 180oC. Bake, covered, for 20 mins then uncover & cook for a further 10 mins or until chicken is cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the chicken.
