3-Ingredient Salsa Verde Chicken Bake
Add this to your list of meals to make when you have few ingredients, no desire to go to the grocery store, and no time to chop, stir, and cook. It’s the easiest weeknight meal! Just 3 ingredients. A jar of salsa verde, chicken breasts, and shredded cheese. Just pop in the oven and go about your life for a 40 minutes. Simple, but delicious.
To begin, we just place some chicken breast pieces in a baking dish. Next, we pour over our salsa verde. You’ll use one 15-ounce jar.
After baking the chicken and salsa verde until the chicken is almost fully cooked. Then we remove from the oven and sprinkle on the shredded cheese of choice. My favorites for this are mozzarella, monterey jack, or pepper jack for a little kick. Then back into the oven to finish cooking the chicken and to allow the cheese to get niiiiiiiice and melted.
For a complete meal, I like to serve this with some rice (or quinoa) and some beans for an added fiber and protein boost. The rice is great to soak up all that salsa verde. Are you drooling yet?
