Cheesy Chicken Chilaquiles

Wednesday, April 15, 2009
This was surprisingly great! It tasted like authentic Mexican. I would definitely make this again!! Next time I would add salsa on top. This was really quick to make - it took less than 30 minutes - all in the microwave! I used two chicken breast and sprinkled a capful of Southwestern seasoning on both sides of the breasts. I didn't break up the chips when I layered them - I also didn't measure them; I just covered the bottom of the baker.

Try this - you won't be disappointed! Let me know how you liked it!

(Printable Recipe)

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp Southwestern Seasoning Mix
  • 1 3/4 cups salsa verde
  • 1 cup 33% reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 12 cups authentic restaurant-style tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded Chihuahua cheese (or Monterey Jack cheese)
  • 1 cup crumbled queso fresco (4 oz)
  • Sour cream or crema (optional)

Cut chicken into 1-in. (2.5-cm) pieces with Utility Knife. Combine chicken and seasoning mix in Deep Covered Baker; mix well. Spread chicken evenly over bottom of baker. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 4 minutes; stir to separate chicken. Microwave, covered, an additional 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Drain using small Colander.

Combine salsa and broth in (4-cup/1-L) Easy Read Measuring Cup. Chop cilantro using Santoku Knife. Arrange half of the tortilla chips over bottom of same baker, breaking chips; top with half each of the chicken, salsa mixture and cheeses. Sprinkle with ½ cup (125 mL) of the cilantro. Repeat layers one time ending with cheeses.
Microwave, covered, on HIGH 5-7 minutes or until cheeses are melted and most of the liquid is absorbed. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup (50 mL) cilantro. Serve with sour cream, if desired.
