Baked chicken in Salsa

I’ve been preparing baked dishes for quite sometime now. So this is another one I added to my list. Chicken is my favorite and I love cooking it differently each time and as goes for flavor, tangy is something I look out for now and then. So I used Mexican sauces and spices to cook the chicken this time. I loved this dish, especially since it is quite hassle free – mixing all ingredients together and baking it. It was the perfect dish on a busy evening!

I hope you enjoy cooking this dish as much as I did. Have a good weekend 🙂
