Week 31 - Mexican Chicken

This is the easiest recipe ever! :-D Only 4 ingredients - I'm a fan!

The Recipe
2 lb chicken, cut into pieces (I used a mix of breasts and thighs rather than a whole chicken, but either works)
1 jar of salsa (~350g) (choose your own heat ;-) )
1 package of taco seasoning (~80g)
1dl breadcrumbs (~0.5 cup)

Put the chicken into a bag or a bowl and pour the salsa on top. Squish around to make sure the chicken is thoroughly coated and put in the fridge to marinate for 2-5 hours.

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Pour a bit of oil into an oven-proof dish.
Mix taco seasoning and breadcrumbs together on a plate, and turn each piece of chicken over in the mix - making sure it's completely covered. Transfer to the oven-proof dish. If there's any of the mix left over, just pour it on top.

Bake for 35 minutes or until the chicken is done.
Serve with rice and fresh beans.

The Verdict
My mum used to make this all the time, but somehow I never thought to make it myself! No idea why, because it is SO easy, and I had forgotten just how good it is. This will definitely be added to my regular rotation.
