Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken One of the few recipes I do without even looking at a recipe book (that does wonders for my self esteem). This is truly so simple to make and tastes so delicious your taste buds will be throwing a fiesta.

Salsa Chicken

Great option for busy weeknights. Just rub the chicken breasts with some taco seasoning and top with salsa. I like my salsa smooth and mild because I have young kids and the taco seasoning gives it a great kick.

I like to pound out the chicken so it cooks evenly and helps with portion control. I find that 2 large chicken breasts are enough for my family of 4 (2 adults and 2 little kids) when we have sides. Goes great with some spanish style rice and green veggies!

¡Buen apetito!
