Easiest yummiest Salsa chicken

EASY Salsa Chicken

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts

Packet of taco seasoning mix (you choose the spiciness level-spelling?:) )

1 jar of your favorite salsa (you choose the spiciness level)

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or pepper jack cheese for spice.

Sour Cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Pour half of the taco seasoning mix into a ziploc baggie large enough to hold a chicken breast.

(add more seasoning to baggie as needed)

Place chicken breast one at a time in baggie and "shake and bake" them until covered in seasoning.

Place chicken breasts on lightly greased 9x13 pan .

Pour salsa over top of each chicken breast.

Bake in oven until juices run clear when cut into the chicken.

Take pan out of oven and sprinkle cheese on top of each breast.

Place back into oven for about 5 minutes (until cheese is melted)

You can top each chicken with a small "dollop" of sour cream or place on dish and dip chicken into it as you like - or not use it at all.

**after trying this I realized it would probably be good to cook it this way and then cut up the chicken breasts for tacos, enchiladas, nachos, anything spanish :) ***
