Salsa Chicken {recipe}

If you know me, you know that I need easy recipes!!
My husband is the main cook in our home, but lately he's been working 2nd shift so I've taken it upon myself to get in the kitchen. The 17 day diet is pretty standard..2 serving of fruit before 2pm, unlimited veggies except the starchy ones, lean meat (chicken, turkey, fish) green tea and water. I may be missing something, but that's basically what I'm going by.
I found a recipe (sorry, can't remember where) for Salsa Chicken.
-Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
-season chicken breasts with taco/chipotle seasonings
-Top chicken with 1Cup salsa
-Bake chicken in the oven for 30 minutes

East enough!

It was very good, light, and again..easy!! I'm on day 2 of the 17 day diet and I must say I'm holding out strong. I already peaked at the scale this morning and I'm already down 2.4lbs..and it's only Wednesday. Stay tuned for my Friday weigh in!

I also put the chicken and salsa in the crockpot for several hours and then shred it when it comes out. You can make chicken tacos or put it on top of a salad and it's really yummy.

Salsa chicken is one of my favorite things to make. The recipe I use put the chicken in the crock pot, top with seasoning, jar of salsa, and can of FF cream of mushroom soup. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-6.

It shreds so well and its super versatile!! Way to go on your progress! Can't wait for the check in today!
