Ok you guys, it’s fall, it’s football season, and it’s time to make Nachos!!! Well truth is I don’t watch football. Ok I’ll make the nachos and you can watch football! 🙂
These Loaded Chicken Nachos can be made for an appetizer or a meal. I prefer the latter. Because I mean who doesn’t want a whole plate full of nachos loaded to the max with toppings!
So the recommended serving size is 4-6. But it really depends on how you want to serve this, as an appetizer or a meal, OR if you’re like me you may want to just scarf this whole pan of nacho goodness in one sitting. (However I don’t recommend the latter, belly ache!) I couldn’t help it, these nachos are soooo addicting! Don’t judge. 😛
These Chicken Nachos are super easy to whip up too. Just simply fry up the chicken, scallions, garlic, and seasonings in a pan.
Then layer everything on a baking sheet and throw it in the oven to bake for about 10 minutes.
Make sure and put a sheet of parchment paper down first on the baking sheet. That way clean up is a breeze… don’t you just love easy clean up after meals! 🙂
You can tweak any of these ingredients to your liking. Make it more spicy by adding some jalapeños, or top it with some homemade guacamole, or salsa.
I made mine kid friendly, so very light on the spice, since my 12 year old son would be eating this with me. So no, I did not eat the whole pan of nachos by myself…but lets just say between the 2 of us we polished it off in one night.
