With only 6 ingredients that are easy to keep on hand, This Green Chile Fiesta Chicken Bake makes dinner quick on even the busiest evening. The tangy (but mild) green chiles, sweet corn, rich monterey jack cheese, velvety cream cheese, and sour cream to tie it all together, this recipe is loved just as much by the adults as the kids in our family. 

Ingredients

Optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  2. Mix the cream cheese, corn, green chiles, sour cream, green onions, and 1 1/2 cup monterey jack cheese together until combined.
  3. Lay the chicken breasts in a large casserole dish. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the chicken and sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over the top.
  4. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (165˚F internal temp)
  5. Garnish with cilantro and serve with your favorite side!

Notes

  • You can cut the chicken in half, chunks, or use chicken tenderloins in lieu of full chicken breasts to make serving easier. Cooking time may be reduced.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container.  The chicken reheats well, or can be chopped and used to make other dishes like enchiladas, tacos, etc.
