Welcome to my kitchen…It’s time for another Chicken Recipe …Last week … Chicken with Mango was a very popular chicken recipe but chicken does go so very well with most fruit and spices…
Chicken is also such a very versatile protein it has little fat(unless we add it)…a healthy alternative to red meat… low in saturated fat, contains higher amounts of omega-6 fatty acids than other animal meats, and is high in protein and essential vitamins and minerals such as B6, B12, iron, zinc, and copper…
Today I am sharing Chicken Nachos…always a crowd pleaser it is quick and easy to make and anything goes its ideal on a balmy summer’s evening …plus its good with or without the chicken…
- 2 cups shredded chicken
- 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
- 1 (18 0z) bag tortilla chips
- 3 cups shredded cheddar
- 1 cup crumbled Cotija …that is a delicious Mexican Cheese.
- 1 cup pickled jalapeños
- 1 cup of finely diced bell peppers in any colour or mix them.
- 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 avocado, thinly sliced (Optional)
- Freshly chopped cilantro, for garnish
N.B if you don’t have Cotija Cheese then feta cheese and Parmigiano Reggiano are very good substitutes.
Preheat the oven to 400° and line a large baking sheet with foil. In a large bowl, toss chicken with barbecue sauce.
Layer half the chips, cheddar, Cotija, chicken, pickled jalapeños, and onion. Repeat.
Bake until cheese is melty and nachos warmed through for about 15 minutes.
Top with avocado and cilantro before serving.
