Green Chili Chicken Bake Recipe

This Green Chili Chicken Bake recipe is rich, creamy and delicious. A quick and easy dinner with less than 10 ingredients made in one dish for quick and easy prep and  clean up.

I don’t know if it is because I grew up surrounded by fantastic mexican food living in Texas or if it is just because the mexican flavors are just so, so good, but I really love green chilis and creamy cheese in just about any combo.  Today’s combo is so rich, creamy and zesty in just the right way.  It is comfort food at it’s best.
