Chicken Picante

Serves :4
Oven Preheat: 375 degrees F
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Easy, easy recipe from the back of the Foster Farms frozen chicken happened one evening when I had zer0000000 inspiration and pulled the chicken out to try and come up with something and then I saw it. The recipe on the back of the bag with just a few ingredients and I had them all. Yipee! Dinner was started and it ended up being pretty good.
Easy to transport, simple ingredients to satisfy anyone and not too spicy for the kiddos or new mommies.

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup medium chunky salsa
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 TB fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 lime cut into segments
  • chopped cilantro for serving
I added a colorful salad and some steamed corn to complete the meal.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking dish with foil.
  2. In a bowl mix salsa, mustard, and lime juice.
  3. Place frozen chicken breasts in pan. Top with salsa mixture. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
  4. Remove foil and continue cooking until the center of the largest piece of chicken reaches 165-170 degrees- about 10-15 minutes.

5. Remove chicken to serving platter
6.Place one spoonful of sour cream on each chicken breast and top with a lime segment. Garnish with chopped cilantro. (Or if you are like our family who doesn't care for sour cream than skip that part:)
