Need a quick but tasty supper option?  This Easy Salsa Chicken is healthy, only requires a few ingredients, and tastes great!!  Perfect for those nights when you need to whip something up quickly.

Easy Salsa Chicken

  • Servings: 2-4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (number depending on how many people you are serving)
  • 1 cup salsa (I used hot; use whatever you prefer!)
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-jack cheese
  • Garlic powder
  • Ground black pepper

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F)
  • Spray a 9×13 glass (or anything oven-safe) dish with olive oil cooking spray
  • Trim any extra fat off the chicken breasts
  • Season both sides of chicken breasts with garlic powder and pepper
  • Pour salsa evenly over chicken
  • Bake for approximately 30 minutes (until juices run clear or the internal temp of the chicken reaches at least 165 degrees F)
  • Remove from the oven, sprinkle with cheese, and place back in oven to cook for an additional 3 minutes (or until cheese is melted)
  • Remove from oven and serve!

I served this over brown rice with a little guacamole, but you could also add a salad, steamed broccoli, or any healthy vegetable as a side!

I will definitely be making this again – SOON!  Enjoy!!img_20161202_190842heartEnjoy this easy meal!!!  Great for chaotic weeknights – let me know how you like it!!
