This easy Mexican Chicken Bake will quickly become one of your favorite dinner recipes: quick easy meals!
I am all about Mexican-inspired recipes lately. I just can’t seem to get enough.
This Mexican Chicken Bake is a spinoff of one of my favorite quick and easy recipes – Baked Chicken Fajitas.
It is extremely easy to assemble and bakes up in 30 minutes. Plus, it’s so versatile.
I like to serve it over rice or sometimes, I slice the chicken and serve it in tortillas for Taco Tuesday. You can serve it with your favorite sides, like black beans, Mexican rice or shred the chicken and use it on tostadas.
I use my homemade taco seasoning in this recipe, but you could easily purchase it at your local grocery store.
