Salsa Chicken

A quick and easy way to prepare chicken is to freeze it with a marinade and then on the day you need it, take it out in the morning and let thaw in the fridge. By dinner time the chicken will be thawed and soaked in the marinade! Just pour the chicken and sauce into a baking dish and bake at 375 degrees until cooked through (the time will depend on how thick your chicken breasts are).

 Here I froze chicken breasts in salsa and teriyaki sauce.

I use salsa, italian dressing and teriyaki sauce the most often for marinades. Here is the "recipe" I use for making Salsa Chicken.

I'll thaw the chicken and place in a baking dish at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes.  I'll then top the chicken with cheese and bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  I'll serve with spanish rice (which is basically rice and salsa mixed together!) and a vegetable.  Because the chicken is baked and the salsa is full of veggies, it can actually be quite good for you! (assuming you don't overdo the cheese and smother it with sour cream as I sometimes do!)

  1. Cool! My mom taught me to buy chicken in bulk (cheaper) then to freeze it with marinade just like you do!
