Chicken Ole

This is a simple recipe I put together.  It's great for a night when you are really pushed to get dinner on the table.  You can bake it ahead of time and rewarm it and no harm done.  There are no fussy ingredients.  Yes, the rice is a little bit funny colored.  It is Zatarain's Dirty Rice; we love it!  I will be posting this with Michael at Foodie Friday.

4-5 chicken breasts
2 cups sour cream -- I used low-fat
1 cup salsa -- I used Pace (mild)
1/2 cup cilantro, leaves only
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 package taco seasoning
Rice -- I used Zatarain's Dirty Rice

Combine taco seasoning with sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and minced garlic, stir well.  Place chicken breasts in 9 x 13 pan.  Pour sauce mixture over.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 to 45 minutes -- depending on thickness of chicken.  Serve over rice.

This looks wonderful and I love anything with cilantro in it! Congratulations--I have never figured out how to make a chicken dish look attractive in a photo. Yours is!! Thanks for stopping by. BTW-I could never keep a "secret" recipe. Can't see the point :)
