Recipe Notes

Helpful Tips

  • Use boneless chicken thighs or breasts that have been cut into uniform sizes (approx 1″ to 2″ in size, or you can do 1.2″ strips if you prefer)
  • Onions cook slower than peppers so, add them a few minutes before adding the peppers. This is a strictly personal preference of course.
  • You can cook the onions and peppers to your desired tenderness. Some people love them crisp-tender, some love them completely soft.
  • Consider making our homemade taco seasoning instead of buying a store-bought packet!
  • Cook the chicken to 165º. It is a safe internal cooking temperature.
  • Since most of the recipe is cooked, you only need to bake the casserole to get the cheese bubbly and heat the inside.  Technically you don’t even have to bake this casserole, but you won’t have that nice gooey melted cheese on top! There is just something about baking all the ingredients together. All the flavors blend together and make a whole casserole of tasty goodness.
  • If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet just cook chicken, peppers, and onion according to the recipe. Stir in the cream cheese and sour cream. Put the mixture into a casserole dish then top with cheese and bake.
