Quick, easy, tasty chicken fajita casserole. Needed to make a meat entree for a small gathering and was tired of my regular baked chicken and rice.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Pour fajita seasoning into a shallow bowl. Rinse chicken, blot dry with paper towels, and dredge in seasoning. Place in the prepared baking dish and pour frozen vegetables over top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven and bake until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown, and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can use 1/2 mozzarella and 1/2 provolone, if preferred.

I made this recipe as is and there is only one slight change I would make. I would cut the chicken into smaller pieces, put the chicken into a freezer bag with the fajita seasoning and shake to coat. Possibly adjusting the cook time by 10-15 minutes less. Other than that it’s a great quick recipe for a busy night. Read More
