Salsa Chicken Casserole

5.0
1 Ratings
This weeknight recipe is fast and full of incredible flavor, thanks to some protein-packed chicken breast and a jar of salsa for richness and texture. With a quick stir-fry beforehand, this casserole can be on the table in under 30 minutes. Perfect for using up leftover rice! If you don’t have leftover rice, microwaveable rice also works well in this recipe. Cooked brown rice or quinoa can also be used in the place of white rice.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 2
Cut the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (1 lb) into 1/2 to 1-inch strips.
Step 3
In a bowl, toss the chicken and half the Taco Seasoning (1/2 packet) seasoning until combined.
Step 4
In a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, add Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) . Once hot, add the chicken and sear until no longer pink, then transfer to a plate and set aside.
Step 5
Add Yellow Onion (1) and Green Bell Pepper (1) to the same pan with the remaining Taco Seasoning (1/2 packet) . Cook until the veggies are softened, 4-5 more minutes.
Step 6
Remove from heat. Add the White Rice (3 cups) and Chunky Salsa (1 jar) and stir until everything is mostly combined.
Step 7
Add to a 9x13-inch casserole dish and top with the chicken, pressing it down into the rice. Sprinkle Shredded Cheddar Cheese (1 cup) over the top.
Step 8
Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is brown and bubbling and the chicken is cooked through.
Step 9
Let cool, then serve with toppings like Scallions (to taste) or Sour Cream (to taste) .
