Creamy Salsa Chicken – Taco spiced chicken cooked with corn and salsa, and sour cream mixed in to make it creamy and delicious! One pan and 20 minutes!
Chicken is pretty much a staple in every house across America. But you don’t always want the same dinner over and over again. Chicken Dinner Ideas are some of my favorite to come up with, because I get bored with dinner quickly and always like to mix it up.
Mexican flavored foods are some of our favorites. Southwest Baked Chicken is such an easy dinner you can get on the table any night of the week. And this salsa chicken recipe is another that is ready in no time!
Seriously this salsa chicken has just 6 total ingredients. That means it is a quick no hassle meal that your family is going to go crazy for. You could add black beans to bulk it up even more. I like to use chicken tenders so the chicken cooks even faster and is on the table in about 20 minutes.
The chicken is seasoned with taco seasoning, so you could use chicken breasts or even chicken thighs if you wanted. Your favorite salsa is perfect to let the chicken simmer in and then just before serving stir in a little sour cream to make it nice and creamy!
How to Make Salsa Chicken on the Stove
Often times you see salsa chicken made in the crock pot. It is a really similar recipe of putting in chicken breasts, taco seasoning and salsa. Then you just let it cook for a few hours and shred. It is great for making tacos, topping salads or even filling of a quesadilla.
This version is made on the stove top and it is ready in 20 minutes.It is super simple to just brown the chicken breasts and then add the salsa to the pan. The chicken simmers in the pan until it is fully cooked and then it is ready to go! Super easy to make on the stove any night of the week.
How to Serve Salsa Chicken
I like to serve with Mexican Rice on the side. It is great enjoyed on its own, or you could dice up the meat and put it into tacos. Refried Beans would be a great side dish as well. The leftovers are great too! My husband likes to warm it up as is, but I like to dice up the chicken and use it to top salads. So making a big batch is a good idea!
Is Salsa Chicken Healthy
Yep, this dinner recipe is a great thing to make when you are watching your fat, calories and even your carbs. If you pick a lower sugar salsa this is great.
