The best thing about this Southwestern take on chicken pot pie is that the only tool you’ll need to make the entire recipe is a can opener. There’s no pre-cooking involved, and the Fiesta Chicken Casserole bakes in a single dish, saving you time on clean-up, too. This recipe is also a great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken. Simply stir together salsa, black beans, corn, cheese, and tender chunks of white meat chicken in a flavorful creamy sauce and top with refrigerated pie dough for the perfect golden, flaky crust. Suddenly, dinnertime feels like a celebration.
cost per recipe: $20.35
Heat the oven to 400°F. While the oven is heating, stir the picante sauce, soup, sour cream, cheese, corn, chicken and beans in a large bowl. Spoon the chicken mixture into a 13x9x2-inch baking dish.
Unfold the pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pie crust into a 14x10-inch rectangle. Place the pie crust over the chicken mixture and trim off any excess. Press the crust to the rim to seal. Cut several slits in the crust.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Serve hot.
comfort food plus++++
I've made this recipes a lot. Its so yummy. I often use quorn which is a vegan alternative. I tried the vegan cream of chicken and its wasnt terrible but not great. I love that you just fold out the crust (I use a top and bottom), open the cans, throw in the frozen veggies, salsa, cheese and canned chicken and poof!! As a single mom, it was a godsend
Made it as is and was a huge success at the party. Used the leftovers as a dip with corn chips and also on bed of lettuce for a taco salad.
Very easy and leftovers are as good if not better
I made the recipe as called for except for the pie crust, which I didn't have at that time so I broke up some tortilla chips and placed them on top like another had said they had and placed them on top. I don't know if they were too crisp (over done) but it did make the casserole taste oily just under the chips. After I got the chips all off it was a really good casserole.
p.s. my husband ate leftovers and he never eats leftovers!
Simple to Make
it was very easy to make. I had a rotisserie chicken that I used. I made twice the amount that the recipe calls for and my family ate it all. Definitely will make again.
Great for casual company
This recipe with a green salad is great when having a few
friends over for a casual dinner. Everyone likes it and it
easily feeds 8-10 when you have a side. It's so easy and
you can make a ahead of time.
I use Fajita chicken in the package and that gives it a
little more flavor than canned chicken.
