I knew that my schedule was extremely hectic this week so I selected recipes that would come together quickly after work. The first recipe I chose to make was a Cheesy Green Chile Chicken Casserole. I promise, it doesn’t get much easier than this. Credit for this recipe goes to Kimber at The Pinning Mama.  You can get the original recipe at this link: http://www.thepinningmama.com/green-chili-chicken-bake-recipe/.

Recipe Origins

I made a few minor changes to Kimber’s recipe and the recipes remain very similar. The ingredients are quite basic.  They include chicken breasts, Three Cheese Blend, cream cheese, and a can of diced green chiles (and a few seasonings). If you are like me, these are things you keep on hand.

Instructions

Putting this dish together is easy. First, the chicken breasts are seasoned and placed in a small baking pan. Softened cream cheese is then mixed with the can of chiles and shredded cheese. Once these ingredients are mixed well, the cheesy blend get spread evenly over the chicken breasts.

The casserole bakes at 350 for approximately 30 minutes. When it has been in the over, for 20 minutes, the remaining cheese gets sprinkled over the top. As always with chicken, make sure that it cooks to the proper internal temperature.

Side Dishes

There are a number of different things that you could serve with this dish. As a low carb eater, I often opt for a simple side salad or grilled squash. Here is a link to one of my favorite squash recipes: https://thymetocreate.com/recipe/grilled-lemon-squash/. But, it would be fantastic with Cilantro Lime Rice.

It doesn’t get much easier than this, does it? And, the best part is that it tastes great! This will definitely continue to show up in my dinner rotations.

Happy Cooking and Eating!
