I originally got this recipe from a Weight Watchers meeting a few years back but it has been a tried and true recipe since! Not only is this recipe delicious but it’s very easy and cheap to make! Getting all of these items on sale make this an even better deal all around.
What you need, chicken breast, salsa, taco seasoning and rice. All of these things can be purchased ahead of time and on sale.
1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup of shredded Mexican mix cheese
1 cup salsa
1 package taco seasoning mix
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Spray oven safe casserole dish with non-stick spray
Empty taco seasoning packet into a ziplock bag or some other type of resealable bag, then place chicken breast into bag and coat well.
Place chicken breast in casserole dish and cook for 30 minutes or until juice runs clear.
Place the salsa and cheese on top of each breast and cook for another 5 minutes.
This is great served with some brown rice and refried beans. Make extra and serve the next day as leftovers for lunch.
Convert to freezer recipe:
Cook in a 8×8 aluminum baking dish or larger if extending the recipe. Don’t cook the last 5 minutes. Pour salsa over each chicken breast and sprinkle cheese. Make sure and let cool. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and freeze.
Let thaw for minimum 24 hours before cooking. Bake in 325 oven for 10 minutes or until chicken is warmed. Also excellent shredded and put into tortillas 😉
Never worry about what's for dinner again. I've got you covered with the meal plans in the Once a Week Cooking Club. Cook once, eat all week.
