More easy chicken recipes I love are Grilled Bourbon Chicken, Roast Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon and Chicken Zucchini Stir-Fry.

When Karina, my oldest daughter (and the pickier of the two) was younger, and I was making something spicy I knew she wouldn’t eat, I used to quickly whip up this dish. Nothing fancy, just ingredients I always had on hand.

Funny because once she went off to college I never made it again. Recently I ask her which of my recipes she likes most, this one is in her list of top 10. Considering how much she likes it and how quick and easy it is to make, I figured I’d have to share it with you all here. I always served it for her over rice with avocado but you can serve it over farro, quinoa or any grain you prefer. I’ve also taken the leftovers and shredded them in my blender for amazing shredded chicken to use in fajitas and quesadillas.

  1. While I love many recipes on this site, this one is probably my all time favorite.  I have made this recipe several times over the years and it’s always a huge hit.  I hadn’t made it in a while and last night I did and was like… man, this is still SO good!  So today, I thought it was time I actually post something to praise this recipe.  I usually cut up chicken breast instead of using tenders and it’s great!  I don’t know how I lived my life without Sazon seasoning… the best!

  2. I skipped the scallions and used a can of rotel with green chili’s instead of fresh tomatoes and this turned out so yummy! I also sprinkled a little bit of the kraft expertly paired asedero cheese on it and this was amazing!!!!! 😍😍😍
