Chicken With Mexican Topping

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

I found this in a magazine and thought it sounded good. I plan to try it when I have access to an oven again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 200c.
  2. Heat the oil in a large oven proof frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally until cooked through and no longer pink (about 20 minutes).
  3. Spoon the beans evenly over the chicken. Sprinkle one cup of cheese over the beans; top with salsa sauce. Sprinkle chopped peppers evenly over salsa. Top with the remaining cheese.
  4. Place the pan in the oven and bake until the topping is heated through and cheese has melted (about 15 to 20 minutes)
  5. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on each portion and a sprinkling of fresh coriander.

I seasoned the chicken with salt and chipotle powder then threw together a fresh salsa by which the freshness can make all the difference in the world. I, also, subbed the refried beans with a can of drained black beans. What else? Let me think...if there could be only one animal to eat, please let it be a chicken. What? It could happen.

*Reviewed for September Recipe Swap in the Aussie Nz Forum* Great chicken. I used my electric skillet/frypan to cook the chicken and then when it came time to add the topping turned the heat down a tad and used the lid to keep the heat in- worked perfectly. We really enjoyed this chicken dinner and served with a salad on the side.I added the jalapenos to two pieces and my daughers were without the peppers. This was great for something a little different. Good easy recipe :) Photo also to be posted

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS !! I used mild salsa. This was a different recipe , but it is DEFINATELY worth making again. It had great taste, loved the cheddar cheese, and the jalapenos. Made for recipe Swap #21.
