Creamy Tomatillo Chicken Bake



This creamy chicken dish can be made well in advance and is a great all in one dish dinner – easy enough to do two and feed a crowd.


Serves 6

1 rotisserie chicken, skin and bones removed and meat chopped into bite size pieces

2 jars (16 ounces) tomatillo (green) salsa

¾ cup heavy cream

12 6 inch corn tortillas

12 ounces Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded (3 cups)

For serving – cilantro, chopped tomatoes and sliced avocado

Oil for preparing a 9X13 casserole pan

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • In a bowl, combine the cream and the tomatillo salsa
  • In another bowl combine the chicken with about ½ cup of the tomatillo mixture
  • Stack the corn tortillas flat and wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave for about 1 minute.
  • Taking one tortilla at a time dip in the salsa mixture and cover both sides and place about 1/3 cup of the chicken in the center and roll, placing it seam side down in the prepared casserole pan – you will fit 8 lengthwise and 4 crosswise.
  • Top with the remaining salsa mixture and top with cheese
  • Bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the top is brown and the sides are bubbly
  • Allow it to rest for about 10 minutes before serving
