Winner Winner, Easiest Ever Chicken Dinner

I cook a meal for Tyler and myself (and soon Parker when he gets some teeth!) almost every night. I plan our meals for the week in advance so that I can try out all the recipes I've bookmarked and ensure that we have all the ingredients needed. But you know what they say about best laid plans... This is what I make on those nights that the baby wants to be held for hours, or decides he's going to nurse non-stop from 6pm to 8 pm. I can get this in the oven with one hand or direct Tyler how to make it from the couch. Serve with a side of rice with peas and corn (or warm potato salad as pictured above), and you've got the easiest dinner ever.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place fresh or still frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with a chunky sauce. Bake until chicken is cooked through- about 20 minutes if using fresh chicken or about 40 minutes if frozen. Top with some shredded cheese, bake for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Chunky sauce options: salsa, tomato sauce, canned diced tomatoes, chili sauce (I use my Grannie's homemade chili sauce which is amazing), etc
