Chicken Salsa Bake Casserole

This is a great dinner! You can make it ahead of time and put it in the fridge to bake later. This would be a great giving meal for someone who just had a baby or surgery. You could throw in some tortillas and you’re good to go!


  • 4 chicken breasts cut into cubes
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper flakes
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 4 roma tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • Jalapeño chopped
  • Fresh cilantro chopped
  • Lime
  • Salt

1. I use separate color coded cutting boards for my meats and veggies. Cube chicken into bite size pieces. Season with cumin, salt, pepper flakes and garlic powder.

2. Chop tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, garlic and cilantro. Season with salt and lime juice.

Place chicken in oiled pan. I like iron skillets for baking casserole’s.

Top chicken with the fresh made salsa.

Top with Muenster cheese. At this point, you can refrigerate it until ready to bake or bake in pre-heated 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.

It will have some liquid because of the tomatoes. You can drain it or if you are having rice you may want the liquid. Serve with warm tortillas or you could serve over rice.
