Chicken Salsa Verde

I found this recipe on the back of a hash brown package! This is so easy and quick to throw together.  I had both teens running in different directions so it fit the bill.  Brooklyn said it was one of her favorites now!
This is definitely NOT a good picture...I had to take it  before the whole pan was gone.  Sorry!

1 pkg Southwest style hash browns(basically add onions and peppers to the hash browns)
8 ounces of sour cream
4 chicken breasts
ground mesquite seasoning
2/3 cup green  salsa(salsa verde)
shredded cheese

Heat oven to 400.  Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.  Mix the potatoes and teh sour cream together and place in the bottom of the dish.  Pat the breasts with the mesquite seasoning and place on top of the potatoes.  Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes or until chicken is tender.  Pour the salsa over the chicken and top with cheese.  Bake again until the cheese is melted! YUM!  I served with tortillas, queso, chips and fruit! Easy!  Enjoy~

YUM! This is an easy recipe I found in one of my many ripped out magazines.  I served it with fresh cream, raspberries and raspberry jam.  You can substitute any fruit and it would be as good!


Heat 2 quarts of oil in a large pot to 375 degrees.

Stretch 1 lb purchased pizza dough into portions of a golf ball size and flatten out. Drop the dough into hot oil and fry in batches until puffed and golden brown.  Drain on a rack and dust with powdered sugar.  Serve with whipped cream, jam and berries! YUM and easy! Enjoy~
