This recipe is so simple and quick, and will work perfectly no matter how many people you’re cooking for. I made it for just the two of us, but it would easily expand to serve a dinner party.
- 1 taco seasoning packet (this will be good for 2-4 servings) or in an ideal world, your own homemade taco seasoning
- 1 chicken breast per person – boneless and skinless
- cheddar cheese (optional)
- sour cream
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the taco seasoning packet with the suggested amount of water.
Brown your chicken breasts in a pan, but don’t worry about cooking them all the way through. We just want to get a little color on them.
Bake the chicken in a little bit of the sauce (just drizzle some) for about 35 minutes, or until the chicken is done.
Simmer the rest of the sauce on the stovetop for about 10 minutes, with the olives mixed in (however many olives you think looks good).
When the chicken timer goes off, pour the rest of the sauce (with olives) over the chicken and sprinkle with a little bit of cheddar cheese. Return it to the oven until the cheese melts.
Slice the chicken and serve over lettuce. Top with sour cream, salsa, and a drizzle of taco sauce.
