Simple Salsa Chicken

"My husband and I prefer our food a little spicier than our children, so one evening I baked plain chicken for the kids and created this dish for us," Jan Cooper relates from Troy, Alabama. "My husband liked it so well that it is now a regular menu item at our house."

    Super easy weeknight dinner. I served this with Easy Mexican Rice (also a Taste of Home recipe). It was a hit with my family so I will be making this again.
