Food Friday: Taco Chicken

This is a guest post from my dear friend Katrina aka @craftsbykatie, who blogs at the fabulous Life With Katie. Katie is a finalist for Mamavation Campaign 10, a weight loss support group for moms in social media.  


Hi all! I wanted to share with you one of my family’s favorite recipes. We call it Taco Chicken. Granted, there was some confusion among my children when I first told them that we were making this. They were really shocked to find out I didn’t mean chicken tacos. Instead, I meant something much yummier. This recipe is quick, easy and depending on how much cheese you use (we use a pretty small amount, just enough for the flavor), it’s pretty healthy too. We usually pair this with a side of steamed asparagus for one delicious meal.

Taco Chicken

This recipe is quick, easy and depending on how much cheese you use (we use a pretty small amount, just enough for the flavor), it's pretty healthy too. We usually pair this with a side of steamed asparagus for one delicious meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salsa
  • low fat shredded cheese (taco blend is nice but any type will work)
  • red potatoes (at least 1 per person)
  • fat free sour cream (optional)
  • taco seasoning (optional)
  • Pam

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Slice potatoes into thin to medium sized slices.
  3. Tear off 4 sheets of tinfoil. This needs to be large enough that you can create a packet around your chicken.
  4. Spray each sheet with Pam.
  5. Divide your potato slices between the 4 sheets and place a chicken breast on top. At this point, if you want, sprinkle the chicken with taco seasoning (I leave it off.)
  6. Pour desired amount of salsa over top and sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Wrap foil around creating a packet. Place your packets on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
  9. Open packets, plate and serve with optional sour cream!
  10. Eat and go yum, yum, yum!
