This chile con queso chicken casserole is a one-dish meal perfect for busy week nights. It’s an easy chicken dinner that’s loaded with Tex Mex flavors and cheese.


I’m always experimenting with flavors and trying new ways to serve up chicken that’s crowd-pleasing, but easy to throw together. Since my boys love Mexican recipes, I keep a lot of taco seasoning and other Tex Mex ingredients in the pantry. That way, I can toss in a few of these to spice up any dinner. I’ve saved many a busy weeknight using a can of salsa and sour cream.

This chile con queso chicken casserole is a one-dish meal perfect for busy week nights. It’s an easy chicken dinner that’s loaded with Tex Mex flavors and cheese.



Ingredients
  • vegetable oil
  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breast, halved
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning mix
  • 1 jar of salsa con queso
  • 1 can of green chilies
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend, shredded
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • chopped tomatoes
  • chopped green onions
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a medium size baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Heat about a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Toss the chicken in the taco seasoning and cook for 6 to 8 minutes until lightly browned on each side.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the queso, chilies, cheese, and half-and-half until well blended.
  5. Pour a small amount of the queso mixture into the bottom of the baking dish, just enough to cover the bottom.
  6. Layer with the chicken. Then pour the rest of the queso mixture of the top of the chicken.
  7. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes longer, or until the juice from the chicken is clear.
  9. Sprinkle with chopped tomatoes, and green onions. I had some crumbled bacon, so I tossed that on top of the chicken, too.
  10. We like to serve this chicken casserole over white rice. Enjoy!
