I have been on a Mexican food kick over the past few weeks because it is just so yummy! And the recipes I have been making are so simple that I almost feel guilty! Naw, I don’t really….I love making food that is healthy, is quick to prepare, and tastes incredible too!! This salsa chicken truly is easy…and delicious too!
I love simple meals because frankly, I don’t want to have to spend all kinds of extra time in the kitchen! To me, cooking tasty, healthy, nourishing meals shouldn’t have to take a long time! I had forgotten about this old standby that I used to use years ago. Of course, back in those days, I was using products that are not exactly healthy….but with homemade ingredients, this recipe was even tastier than it was before. This recipe is great for those days that you need a meal that requires little prep time. You can literally get this in the baking dish and ready to go in 5 minutes! Let it cook and voila….you have a tasty meal!
Be sure to see my recipe for homemade taco seasoning, which is much better than the store-bought versions!
I typically will buy a good, organic store-bought salsa to use with this. I typically only make from scratch salsa during the summer when tomatoes are in season. So, using an organic variety is absolutely okay to make this dish super simple…and that is a really good thing! You will be amazed at how great this dish really is!
I love to pair this with my Southwestern Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing. It makes for a great meal!
Now, if you are using large, thick chicken breasts, then you may need to cook these a little longer than what the recipe calls for. Make sure you cook it to 165 degrees F to kill any bacteria!
I often double this recipe and have leftovers the next day…it’s just that good!
