Someone gave me this recipe a few years back and it's become a household favorite. You can use mild, medium or hot salsa depending on your taste. I usually serve it with Spanish rice and Mexican-style canned corn. Very easy and quick!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
  2. Place chicken breasts in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle taco seasoning on both sides of chicken breasts, and pour salsa over all.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juicy and its juices run clear.
  4. Sprinkle chicken evenly with cheese, and continue baking for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with sour cream if desired, and serve.
  5. Family loves it. I marinate chicken in taco seasoning (with 2/3 cup water per package) for several hours before cooking. At end I take out all salsa, add about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sour cream, and pour back over chicken. Top with cheese and put back in oven for 3-5 minutes to melt the cheese. They love the creamy salsa mixture.


Like this version best...the sour cream/salsa addition at the end does make a great addition. But the fam still didn't rave. It's good, but not great. Better in tortillas tho!
