Salsa Chicken, Salsa Chicken, Salmon Ball, Coconut Pound Cake Recipe

Salsa Chicken Recipe

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (I used
  • chicken tenders - 3 tenders and 3 points per serving)
  • 4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup salsa (hot or mild, to your taste)
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I use Kraft 2% low fat)
  • Light sour cream for garnish (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place chicken breasts in 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle taco seasoning on both sides of chicken. Pour the salsa all over the breasts. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 25 - 30 minutes or until chicken is tender and juicy and juices run clear.
Sprinkle the cheese on the breasts evenly and bake another 5 minutes or so until melted and bubbly.
Serve with fat free sour cream as a garnish if desired.
