30 Minute Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken the ultimate meal filled with all the Mexican flavors you love. A one pan dish that is so easy to make it’s amazing! Perfect for quick dinners and fantastic for meal prep!

Tried and true dump and go 30 minute meal. This salsa chicken is covered is flavor packed taco seasoning, chunky salsa , seared juicy chicken , black beans and corn.

This simple recipe is surprisingly delicious. Some taco seasoning and your favorite jar of salsa will give these chicken breasts tons of flavor. And cooking the breasts in the salsa keeps them super tender and juicy. Nothing worse than dry chicken.

It’s a recipe I reach for often as there’s always chicken in the freezer and salsa in the fridge. All the ingredients in this recipe are staples I keep in my pantry and fridge to keep healthy home cooked meals easy.

All you need for this recipe is:

  • black beans
  • fire roasted corn
  • Jarred organic salsa or homemade
  • fire roasted tomatoes -I love the ones with green chiles
  • chicken – I love getting pasture raised
  • Taco seasoning
  • Cilantro and lime
  • Avocado or guacamole is optional but so delicious on top

To make this meal you quickly sear the chicken a pan and then add into a baking dish, top with the remaining ingredients, bake and then serve! A true one pan meal the whole family will love.

Cooked chicken will keep well for 2-3 days in your fridge. Reheat it gently on the stove, adding a little splash of water to the pan if the salsa sauce gets too dry. Or you can use a microwave to reheat if you’re away from home. Happy cooking XOXO
