Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 12 ounces chicken breast sliced (350 grams)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese Mexican blend, Monterrey Jack, or cheddar
  • 3 bell peppers red, green, yellow, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 onion thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F (190C). Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Combine the spices in a small bowl and mix well.
  • Spread the chicken strips in the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle on half the seasoning. Spread on the mayonnaise. Top with half of the shredded cheese.
  • Spread the peppers and onion evenly over the top. Sprinkle with remaining seasoning and cheese.
  • Cover with tin foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the tin foil and bake an additional 3-5 minutes, until the cheese is nice and bubbly.

Notes

The chicken needs to register 165 degrees F to be safe to eat. Use a meat thermometer to make sure it’s reached that level before consuming.
