Chicken Salsa Verde Casserole

Using grocery store shortcuts like rotisserie chicken and salsa, you can get this Chicken Salsa Verde Casserole on the table in about 30 minutes. That makes this an excellent dinner recipe for any day of the week when you’re short on time and too tired to put in too much effort, yet you’d rather have a home-cooked meal than get takeout.

To prepare this meal quickly and easily, here are a few tips. As your oven is preheating, spray your baking dish with cooking spray, shred the chicken, and chop the tomatoes and cilantro. Measure out all your ingredients, and then start putting together the casserole. As the casserole is baking, chop any toppings you plan to serve with the casserole, such as jalapeño peppers and green onion; chop the avocado after you’ve taken the casserole out of the oven so that it looks its freshest!

For the ingredients, I used a rotisserie chicken from my local grocery store. Theirs is gluten-free, and your grocery store rotisserie chicken is likely gluten-free, too, but be sure to ask the deli manager. For the salsa, I used Xochitl Asada Verde Salsa, which is a delicious green salsa. You can make this dish dairy free using dairy free sour cream and dairy free shredded cheese.
