How to Make Baked Salsa Verde Chicken
This recipe is so easy to make. I’m not even sure I would call these directions. All you need is chicken and salsa verde. Then, just dump and bake!
Salsa Verde Chicken Bake Ingredients
- 3 chicken breasts – cut in half
- 1 – 15 ounces – jar Salsa Verde
- 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
- Garnish with cilantro and chopped tomatoes. I think it would also taste great with fresh pico de gallo.
Salsa Verde Chicken Bake Directions
Place chicken in baking dish. Cover chicken with salsa verde making sure the chicken is completely covered. Bake chicken for 40 – 45 minutes or until chicken reaches 175 degrees internally. This dish is baked uncovered and I do recommend flipping the chicken half way through just to keep the tops from drying out.
Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese over chicken. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. You can also broil the chicken for 2-3 minutes if you are really hungry.
