Quick Enchilada Bake

6 Oct

Who doesn’t love a meal that consists of 5 ingredients and one pan?  This girl does!  This meal is perfect for those days when you just want a quick meal with low fuss and minimal mess.  Sit back, get comfy and see just how easy this meal can be.  Enjoy!

4 chicken breasts (about 1 1/2-2 pounds). Sprinkle both sides of chicken
with taco seasoning about a teaspoon per side. Bake in 350 degree oven
for about 35-40 minutes or until cooked through.
While chicken is cooking slice up about 4-5 green onions.
You will need 1 Cup of your favorite cheese. Really, you could use
as much or as little as you like. 1-19oz can of enchilada sauce. This yields
about 2 Cups of sauce. Again use less if you would prefer it less saucy.
We used extra sauce in ours because we served ours with tortillas and
white rice. The extra sauce absorbed into the rice and made it extra yummy!

When chicken is done remove it from the baking pan and dice it up into bite sized pieces. Add the enchilada sauce and mix well. Top with cheese and place back into your 350 degree oven for 20 25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the mixture is hot and bubbly.

                                                                                                                        

                     When it is done baking sprinkle with the green onions.

            We served ours with white rice rolled in tortillas topped with 
               lettuce and tomatoes. Now for the verdict from some tough critics…

Our little man approves and………
                                                                                                                                                                                    

                  Very enthusiastic thums up from the girls. The hubba hubba hubby
    also gave it a thumbs up.

Recipe

3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1-2 tsp taco seasoning

4-5 green onions thinly sliced

1 C. shredded cheese

1-19oz can enchilada sauce

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Place chicken in baking pan and sprinkle both sides with taco seasoning.  Bake 35-40 minutes or until cooked through.  Slice up green onions while chicken is cooking, set aside.  Remove chicken from oven and cut into bite sized pieces.   Return chicken to baking pan and add the enchilada sauce, mix well.  Top with cheese and return it to your 350 degree oven.  Cook an additional 20-25 minutes or until mixture is hot and bubbly and cheese is melted.  Sprinkle with green onion.

Serve as is or on top of crisp shredded lettuce (great low carb meal) or as my family did, with tortillas.  A little less fussy than traditional enchilada’s.  As always, thank you for visiting.  I love to hear from you and to see what you’re cookin’.  If you have a favorite recipe, please share below or add a link, I would love to see it!
