Fiesta Chicken

Our dinner emergencies deserve a superhero. The next time hanger strikes and my cupboard is bare, I’d like to shine a Batman-inspired distress signal into the air. Instead of a bat, it will illuminate the silhouette of a cast-iron skillet and Fiesta Chicken will arrive to rescue me from my dinner emergency!

This Fiesta Chicken recipe is an oldie but a goodie from the recipe archives. It’s one of the first dishes I ever learned to cook, so I can attest that even if you are just starting out in the kitchen, you can make it with confidence and success.

Although I’ve since expanded my recipe repertoire, this Fiesta Chicken casserole recipe is one I still make regularly because it meets several of my core dinner requirements:

  • Easy. Can you chop and stir? You can make Fiesta Chicken.
  • Healthy. Veggies, lean protein, whole grains…the gang is all here.
  • Tex-Mex Inspired. A.k.a. can serve as a vehicle for avocado. This house approves.
  • Even Better Leftover. Cook once, eat yummy leftovers all week! A win for meal prep. Your coworkers will be jealous.
