Baked Salsa Chicken Casserole is the perfect one pan dinner recipe for busy week nights or any night that you want a quick and easy dinner that’s full of flavor!
Did you have a good weekend? We just got back from summer vacation. We went to South Haven, MI and it was gorgeous. The perfect mix (to me) of “up north”, quiet beach town and city (plenty of shopping and food within minutes). It was our first vacation and road trip with Julia but she did really well and we had a great time.
One Dish Baked Salsa Chicken Casserole
I can’t believe that Labor Day is this weekend and summer will officially be over. All my friends with older kids will be (or already are) back to the hustle bustle of school days.
Julia isn’t in school yet, but our evenings are constantly hectic and I’m always trying to think of quick and easy dinner ideas. I make a really easy slow cooker salsa chicken but sometimes, I forgot to set the slow cooker so this One Dish Baked Salsa Chicken Casserole is perfect.
McCormick has a new line of organic, non-GMO, seasoning mixes that help make flavorful dinners that you can feel good about. There is Brown Gravy Mix, Chili Seasoning Mix, Fajita Seasoning Mix, and the Taco Seasoning Mix, which I used in this dish.
