I love this recipe. It’s simple prep, simple cooking and it’s delicious! The first time I made this recipe Aspie Teen literally licked his plate clean. Now, he won’t even look at it and will make himself an entirely different dish if I make it.
I’ve made this for friends who’ve loved it, and I took it to work and watched it disappear, so I know it’s good! But if your house is anything like mine, and you have to make three different dinners for the spectrum members of your family, you know the frustration of saying never mind to making the dishes you would want cause it’s just not worth the bother of making it for one or two people when you have to make something different entirely for everyone else.
BUT, if perchance you are looking for something fairly easy and different, here it is. Enjoy. May the force be with you when you want to prepare it.
Boneless chicken breasts or tender chunks
1 packet taco seasoning
1 jar salsa (mild or medium is up to you)
1 brick Monterey Jack cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Clean chicken breasts/chunks and place in baking pan.
Season chicken to taste (I usually use a little salt and garlic powder).
Add taco seasoning to chicken, cover evenly.
Cover chicken in salsa.
Bake in oven for approximately 30-45 minutes depending on how thick the chicken pieces are, or until chicken runs clear.
Shred the cheese and cover chicken evenly. Bake another 3-5 minutes to melt cheese.
Serve chicken with a side of sour cream or guacamole on the plate. A good side dish is rice or salad or both.
