Starting WHOLE30 and need some comfort dinner recipes? Check out this Chicken Queso Bake we created using our Zesty Cilantro sauce and a compatible cashew queso! If you are not on a round, you can choose any cheese sauce of your liking!
2 skinless boneless chicken breasts (cut into halves)
2 Tbsp of your favorite cooking oil
4 Tbsp of our Zesty Cilantro sauce
1 jar of queso sauce. We used this one.
1 small tomato chopped
1 small onion diced
salt and pepper to taste
fresh cilantro for garnish
PREHEAT oven to 400F.
MARINATE your chicken in the 4 Tbsp of our Zesty Cilantro sauce for 15-30 minutes.
HEAT the 2 Tbsp of oil in a pan at medium heat. Sear your chicken for 2-3 min per side. Set aside.
ADD the onions and tomatoes to the pan and sauté for 3-5 min. Return the chicken to the pan and cover with the jar of cashew cheese.
BAKE in the oven for 15 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
GARNISH with fresh cilantro and serve warm! We like to pair this dish with some cauliflower rice or side veggies to make it a full WHOLE30 meal.
