Chicken Nachos

  • Preparation Time10 mins

  • Serves6
  • DifficultyEasy
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
2 tablespoons chilli powder
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup olive oil
8 ounces tomato sauce
A few dashes hot sauce
1 large bag tortilla chips
3 cups grated Cheddar-Jack (approximately -- you may need more or less)
1/4 cup jarred jalapeno slices
1/4 cup chopped pitted black olives
3 tomatoes, finely chopped
3 green onions, green and white parts, finely chopped
1/4 cup sour cream

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Sprinkle the taco seasoning and chilli powder all over the chicken breasts.

2. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and saute on both sides until browned, about 5 minutes per side, then remove from the skillet and set aside. To the skillet, add the tomato sauce, hot sauce and 2 cups hot water and bring to a gentle boil.

3. Shred the chicken with 2 forks, then return the shredded chicken to the liquid and simmer on low until everything is hot and bubbly.

4. Assemble the nachos in 2 ways: Sprinkle a layer of tortilla chips onto 2 ovenproof plates or baking dishes. Sprinkle both with cheese and then a layer of chicken; repeat twice more with each layer getting smaller in circumference. Finish with an extra sprinkling of cheese. Bake just until the cheese melts, 5 to 10 minutes.

5. Serve one dish as is. On the other, layer on the jalapenos, black olives, tomatoes, green onions and sour cream.
