Creamy Mexican Fiesta Chicken Recipe ~ One Pot Chicken Dinner

“Tonight for supper I am making Fiesta chicken. It is quick, easy and yummy! I’m Tess and welcome to my kitchen. Let’s get started making this easy one-pot Fiesta chicken. In my skillet I’m adding 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil and about two pounds of cubed chicken breast. You can use thighs and in fact that probably would add a lot more flavor.

Adding some salt and pepper and cooking until the chicken is no longer pink and that takes about five minutes. Now I’m adding 1 cup of chopped onion and one cup of bell pepper. Giving that a toss and cooking for a couple minutes before adding my spices. In goes two cloves of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of chili powder… one quarter teaspoon of cumin and 1 teaspoon of oregano. You can substitute the chili powder, cumin and oregano for your favorite Mexican or taco seasoning. Giving that a toss around the pan and letting that cook for about 5 minutes at a medium summer. Letting the meat and veggies absorb all those flavors. If you like this video please remember to give me a THUMBS UP, SUBSCRIBE and leave a COMMENT below. You can also find me on Facebook and Tess Cooks4u blog. Next goes in one cup of your favorite salsa and I’m using a medium chunky salsa. Here is where you can add more heat if you wish. You can even add a minced jalapeno for more zest. I’m also adding 1 cup of diced fresh tomatoes which will add a little more liquid.

MMMmmmmm, it is smelling good! Giving that a good mix and letting that simmer for a couple minutes until the tomatoes breakdown. It’s getting better! I’m adding 1 cup of corn and I’m using fresh corn but you can use canned or frozen. Also adding one can of rinsed and drained black beans. Giving that another good mix and letting it cook for 23 minutes. This Fiesta chicken is so quick and easy. You can find a list of ingredients in the description box below. And we’re almost done! Only five to seven more minutes I’m adding a quarter cup of fresh chopped green onions and a quarter cup of fresh chopped parsley for some freshness. You can add cilantro also. Adding a half a cup of sour cream and… hold on! Four ounces of cream cheese. You can add the entire eight ounce bar if you wish but I think a half is enough for us.

It is rich and creamy! Turn the heat to low and stir until the cheese is all melted. Give it a taste test and adjust any of the seasonings. This creamy Mexican Fiesta chicken can be ready in 30 to 40 minutes. You can serve with rice, inside enchiladas or tonight I’m serving with some egg noodles. The chicken is nice and tender with all the flavors of the veggies, and a rich creamy Mexican sauce that melts into the egg noodles! YUMMY! Topping with some fresh chopped green onions and parsley. What a way to end a day! I hope you try this Fiesta chicken and please share by commenting below. Until next time… Much Love! Thanks for joining me here at Tess Cooks4u.
