Salsa Chicken Bake

Salsa chicken bake is one of the easiest, yet most flavorful dish you can make! All you need for this dish is some chicken breasts, seasonings, a really good salsa and some cheese.

This dish makes two chicken breasts, with half a chicken breast per serving.

There is not much ‘babysitting’ to this dish either. It is pretty much just a pop in the oven and go kinda meal. I love those sometimes!

I am more of a mild to medium kind of girl, but if you want something spicier, use a hot salsa.

I make the serving for my husband with some kick in it, while keep mine more tame. I will show you how to do that.

I serve this dish with chips and salsa because I am seriously obsessed. Chips and salsa is one of my favorite snacks. I will take any excuse to eat some!!

So, let’s get started!
