Directions

1. To make your cheesy salsa chicken casserole recipe: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lay the chicken flat in a large baking dish and season chicken breast with cumin, crushed red chili pepper, salt, and pepper.

2. Make the salsa: Place the fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, cumin, and salt in a food processor. Pulse briefly to crush the ingredients and set aside.

3. Cover chicken breast with the salsa, then top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake the chicken casserole on the middle rack for 20-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through — Internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C).

4. Remove the chicken casserole from oven. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and serve the cheesy salsa chicken casserole hot with your favorite side dish. Enjoy!

Tips for the salsa chicken casserole recipe

  • You can slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally to reduce baking time.
  • If you have some salsa leftover, you can serve it as a dip with tortilla chips.
  • You can also make this chicken casserole recipe with cooked shredded chicken, baking time will be shorter, and it’s still delicious!
  • Freeze individual portions of the cheesy salsa chicken casserole so you have a quick dinner for busy nights when you don’t have time to cook from scratch.
