You can find the heat of formation of NH4+, Cl-, HCl, and NH3, and then subtract the right of the equn from the left to get the solution.

The principle here is that the energy on the right should be equal to the energy on the left. The gap that you will get should be the energy released, which is your heat of reaction.
