I make this 3-Ingredient Salsa Chicken dish quite often. It’s super easy and everyone in my family loves it because the chicken always comes out tender and flavorful.
This is one of my favorite go-to dinner meals that I like to make on busy evenings. And, I almost always have chicken, salsa, and cheese on hand.
Another bonus is that there’s very little prep involved and you don’t need to marinate the chicken ahead of time.
I’ve had this recipe for a long time and I think the original recipe floating around in our family recipe box called for 8-ounces of cheese. That always seemed like too much so I cut it to 4-ounces. I also use a mild chunky salsa because my boys don’t like it too spicy but you could use a medium or hot salsa if you prefer.
Although this 3-Ingredient Salsa Chicken dish is really a meal in itself, I usually serve it with a side of mashed potatoes. Weird I know, but it’s delicious with mashed potatoes! If we’re really busy, I just serve it with a salad, corn on the cob, or green beans. Of course, rice and refried beans are great sides too!
