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.


  • Spray oil
  • 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. 

Serve with sour cream.
