Tasty Tuesday Link Up 7: A quick and easy week night meal!

February 21, 2017, by Katie {The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life}

Happy Tuesday! I'm Katie from The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life.  Excited to be hosting today's Tasty Tuesday link-up here at the The Blended Blog.

 I will admit, I am not much of a cook!  I have gotten better at it and have gained a respect for cooking thanks to Hello Fresh, but more often then not, I don't cook!  As my blog title states, I live a somewhat solitary life, so on the daily, I'm cooking for one!  And some nights, when I get home from work, I'm just too tired to cook or even want to drag everything out to begin preparing a meal...and then cleaning it up.

But that is not to say I don't have a fave go-to meal!  That's the one I'm sharing today!  It's a good one because it's a great meal for one, like me, or for the whole family. I shared this recipe a few years ago in a cookbook my school compiled for a fundraiser that all my co-workers call it Miss Mitchell's Salsa Chicken!  With just three ingredients, it's a breeze to make!!

You will need:
  • Cookie sheet
  • aluminum foil
  • boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • your favorite salsa
  • a can of mexi-corn
  • a bag of Mexican Blend shredded cheese

Here's the recipe:

  • Place a piece of thawed boneless, chicken breast in the middle of a piece of aluminum foil
  • Coat with a generous tablespoon of salsa and a spoonful of mexi-corn (or just corn's ok too!) 
  • Wrap chicken up in foil, making a breathable packet.  
  • Place chicken on a cookie sheet for baking.
  • Bake at 450* for 18-22 minutes (depending on the thickness of your chicken). 
  • Remove from oven and carefully open the packet.  
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of the chicken, closing packet to let it melt for a few minutes before plating (don't return to oven). 
  • Serve with tortilla chips and/or rice.

Easy peasy!  The chicken is moist and delish! Great meal for the busy week nights!!
