We eat a lot of chicken in my house and this Cheesy Salsa Baked Chicken has been a long- standing favorite because it’s so easy to make. No matter how tired I am, I never tire of making it.
In his younger days, my son was always eager to help me make meals. With this particular dish, he used to love combining the cheddar cheese soup and salsa together with a whisk while I got everything else ready. I used to tell him it was a very important job and that we were a team. Maybe that’s why he likes to cook to this day. Who knows?

Other Chicken Dinners to Try
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.
