This Cheesy Salsa Baked Chicken recipe is super yummy with only 4 ingredients. I call these easy and delicious meals fast and fabulous! This recipe is definitely worth a try!
Cheesy Salsa Baked Chicken is a perfect choice for a weeknight dinner. I always have a can of condensed cheddar cheese soup and salsa in the cupboard as well as some shredded cheese in the drawer in my fridge. In a pinch this recipe has always come in handy!
We eat a lot of chicken in this house and this Cheesy Salsa Baked Chicken has not only been a long standing favorite but is so easy to make I never mind preparing it, no matter how tired I am.
It’s funny, I remember my son used to love combining the cheddar cheese soup and salsa together with a whisk while I got everything else ready. He always had so much fun helping me.
Just in case this chicken dish isn’t for you I have listed some others below you just might want to have a look at. You can never have too many chicken recipes. Hopefully you will enjoy them as much as we do!
For the record, you can use your favorite salsa or even add some hot sauce to the mixture before you pour it all over the chicken, my son always does to this day.
My husband and I can’t handle as much heat at all in our food anymore which is another reason getting older is terrible in some ways! Regardless, I urge you to taste it before you cover the chicken breasts. You will be glad you did.
Our video is below! I hope you take a moment to have a look!
Cheesy Salsa Baked Chicken
- 4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
- 1 jar (15 1/2 oz) salsa
- 1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cheddar cheese soup
- 1 cup cheese, shredded, Mexican blend, more or less to taste
- 3 tblsp taco seasoning or 1 package

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13x9 inch baking pan, covered in tinfoil, coated with cooking spray. Set aside.
Coat all sides of the chicken breasts with taco seasoning. Place the chicken breasts on to the baking pan.
In a medium sized bowl combine cheddar cheese soup and salsa. Pour and spread over the top of each chicken breast. Cover with tinfoil.
Place into the oven and bake for 55-60 minutes or until juices run clear.
Turn oven up to broil. Remove tinfoil and sprinkle cheese on each chicken breast. Put back in the oven for about 5 minutes, until cheese is melted and brown. Remove from the oven and serve with rice or whatever you desire! Spoon pan juices on top of your rice. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
