Description

A tasty and quick dinner recipe that can be made simply as chicken, or as a casserole.

Ingredients

  • 8 pieces Chicken Tenders
  • 4 Tablespoons Velveeta
  • ⅔ cups Plain Yogurt
  • 1 can (10 Oz. Size) Rotel
  • ½ teaspoons Chili Powder
  • ⅔ cups Cooked Rice (optional)
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Beans (optional)
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheese
  • Fritos, For Garnish

Preparation

Spray a 7×11″ baking dish with nonstick spray, then line the dish with the raw chicken tenderloins. Melt the Velveeta in a large microwave safe bowl. Stir in the yogurt, Rotel, and chili powder.

If you are making the casserole version of this dish, stir in the rice and beans as well. Pour the mixture over the chicken, top with shredded cheese, and bake in the oven at 350ºF for 30-40 minutes.

Top with Fritos and serve with a nice, fresh salad.

Delish! I used three 3 chicken breasts and sour cream instead of yogurt. I didn’t add the rice or beans in the casserole, but I did serve it with rice. Definitely adding this to our dinner rotation. Thanks!

I doubled this and made it in the casserole form, and cooked and shredded the chicken first. I also added 1 tsp cumin and 1 tsp garlic powder to make sure it wasn’t bland. This was very easy to make and won the approval of my husband and I, as well as our dinner guests. Thanks for sharing!
