I’ve been craving Mexican food, so this really hit the spot.  Easy as can be using frozen chicken tenders and salsa.  This is a great recipe for weeknight quick dinners, and it utilizes pantry staples I usually have on hand.  Frozen chicken tenders, salsa, shredded cheese, rice, and beans.

1 package Tyson Crispy Chicken Tenders

1 Jar salsa (I used verde, but it looks prettier with more colorful salsa)

1 pack shredded Mexican cheese

  1.  Pour salsa into 13×9 baking dish.
  2. Arrange chicken tenders in salsa.
  3. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  4. Cover with foil.
  5. Bake at 350F for 40 minutes.  Remove foil and put back in the oven to allow cheese to completely melt.
  6. Serve with rice and beans.

I used Minute Rice Multigrain Medley and Lucky’s organic canned black beans.  The rice and beans cook while the tenders are in the oven.

This is yummy topped with sour cream too!
