Cheesy Chicken Fiesta Casserole is filled with crispy coated chicken breasts and covered with a lightly spiced creamy cheese sauce. It's all packed into one easy to bake, cheesy casserole. The perfect weeknight dinner for the whole family.
4large bonelessskinless chicken breasts or 8 small
2cupsfat-free half & half
1cupsharp cheddar cheeseshredded
1can4 oz chopped green chiles, do not drain
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13x9x2-inch baking dish by spraying with a non-stick spray.
Crumb Cheez-Its by placing into large ziploc bag and seal. Using a rolling pin, just roll over it in different directions until there are only fine crumbs left. You can also save time by grinding it in a small chopper. I like the Ninja Chopper, works well and easy to clean.
Mix crumbed mixture with the taco seasoning in the same bag.
Place the chicken pieces, one at a time, in the bag and shake to coat.
Place chicken into prepared pan in a single layer. I like to pat the remaining seasoned crumbs left in the bag onto the chicken.
In a medium skillet, melt butter and sauté green onions until tender.
Stir in half & half, cheeses and green chiles.
Pour over chicken then place in oven, uncovered, and bake for 45 minutes.
