Mexican Quickie Chicken

Yes, that's right! - this recipe is QUICK and it involves a "mexican" flare.  I saw a recipe similar to this out in "blog land" but was then not able to re-locate it to give the proper name and even link to the owner.  So if any of you reading this post and know who the recipe belongs to please do share. :-) 

*Since posting this recipe I have had the luck of being reminded where I originally 
saw this dish similar to how I've made this recipe - 
Betty Cupcakes posted it on her adorable and yummy blog!  Be sure to check her out!

Mexican Quickie Chicken
(this recipe has been adapted from Betty Cupcakes)


3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1tbsp olive oil

1 tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp ground pepper (if you wish)

1 cup salsa (store or homemade)

1 cup grated mexican cheese blend (more if you wish)


*Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.*

1. Drizzle olive oil over bottom of baking dish of your choice (I used a glass 9x9 dish).  Place chicken in dish and roll around in olive oil to coat on all sides.

2. Sprinkle with garlic salt (and ground pepper if you wish).  Then cover chicken with salsa and then grated cheese.

3. Cover with tin foil.

4. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until juices of chicken run clear.  Remove tin foil and serve.

I served this chicken dish with rice pilaf....egg noddles or just a side of veggies would be yummy too.


Happy Mexican Quickie Chicken Baking,
