This cheesy Salsa Chicken for Two is the easiest homemade chicken dinner ever. No cutting or measuring needed and made all in one pan!
Once both sides of the breasts are browned, remove pan from heat and pour salsa over the top of the chicken. Place pan in the oven and bake for 15 to 25 minutes (the size of your chicken breasts will have a dramatic effect on cooking time), until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken reads 150°F.
Sprinkle cheese over the top and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, until the chicken reaches 160°F. Remove from the oven and allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Spoon extra salsa from the pan over white rice and serve with steamed green beans or broccoli and enjoy!
*If you don't have taco seasoning, just sprinkle on a little chili powder and cumin.
*If using a very thick, chunky salsa, you can add a couple tablespoons of water or chicken broth over the top to keep the juices in the pan from burning.
