I’ll admit it, I”m a horrible cook. My mother always left the cooking up to my sister, while I was in charge of washing the dishes and helping prep – so when I moved out on my own last summer I really didn’t know what to do. Gaining the 30lbs probably came from the nights that Brandon and I ate Carne Asada Fries (we lived next door to a place) or the Boiling crab (crawfish galore) or the KBBQ… So today, on a whim I decided to make Salsa Chicken!
Brandon made it for me once, but he used too much Taco Seasoning and it was very salty; so this time I decided to just buy one packet. I also made a huge HUGE mistake – I literally decided to thaw the chicken 5 minutes before…. I think I spent like an hour trying to thaw frozen chicken; I boiled water – tried to shove it into the bag, I used my arms to try to rip the chicken from each other to no avail. I know, I know… I learned my lesson! I finally ripped off enough pieces of chicken and turned on the oven , I decided to defrost the chicken that way.
So, if you guys want to learn how to make this EASY Chicken read below the tag!
How To Make Salsa Chicken !
I know the directions said to add Salsa but I decided not to… but honestly, it tastes better to have the salsa cooked into the chicken!
This is the meat after I poured Taco Seasoning over it.
I marinated some in Ranch for my dad. I made sure to add lots and lots of onions!
Baking comfortly 🙂
So much cheese, yummy!
The finished product…
Overall, it was so easy and very cheap to make! Like I said, do put the salsa in with the chicken at the very beginning… it tastes a lot better. I know what I’ll make for Brandon when he comes over in the future!! But, I do have to say… this recipe isn’t that healthy (with the sour cream and cheese) so we will eat it once in a while.
