I know, I know – I said the Mexican dishes were through. But I made this today and wanted to share. Easy, easy and so delicious and so versatile? Eat straight out of the dish with a side of the yellow rice and black beans. Serve on nachos. Put in a taco. Or make a quesadilla out of this. What about on a baked potato? The possibilities are endless!
Here’s how I made ours.
I took three skinless boneless chicken breasts cause that was the number that was in the package (rinsed off first, cause that’s how I am), threw them in a bowl. Took about two to three tablespoons of oil to coat them (this will depend on how big yours are) and then sprinkled on a whole packet of taco seasoning mix (mild or hot-you choose) and rub seasoning in. Lay these on a pan lined with foil (you will thank me later) and sprinkle with a bit of salt. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees. You can grill these if you want. Adds another level of flavor.
Here’s mine after baking – a good looking crust on these and man were they juicy. Cut into chunks and throw the chunks in a casserole dish – I think mine is a 9 inch or close to it. Here are mine all cut up in the dish.
Then I added about 2/3 of the 8-oz. jar of Taco Bell Taco Sauce – medium heat – not sure if hubby could eat much of the “hot” level!. You can use enchilada sauce in place of the taco sauce if you prefer. Then add a sprinkle, about 4 ounces, again depends on how much chicken you use, over the top and bake about 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted hot. Top with chopped green onions. I used one green onion, chopped.
Doesn’t this look good? And I have to tell you, it was! Make this and see how you serve yours up! Have a great week!
