One-Pan Cheesy Corn And Jalapeño Chicken

Okay, sometimes even the idea of cooking dinner after a long day just seems…well, hard. The process of planning, shopping and just the potential clean-up alone is enough to make anyone sit down and sigh or, fold and spend too much money on a meal out that is rarely as good as it would have been if made at home. That’s why we love that this dish makes things simple with great taste to boot! The combination of chicken and vegetables is both hearty and flavorful, bursting with zesty latin spices, cheese and jalapeños – and it all comes together in only one pan! Sweet corn kernels compliment and calm any spiciness for the perfect balance, but feel free to adjust the spice level to your preference. Trust us, all the flavors in here make this meal taste like you’ve been cooking in the kitchen all day.

Who doesn’t love to look like a kitchen whiz and receive compliments despite spending less than an hour in the kitchen? Hey, if people think we spent hours in there whipping up their dinner, we’re okay with that! Another great part of this recipe is that you can prepare the spices all in one zip lock bag the same day or in advance for those times when you really just don’t have any. Remember shake and bake? This is a similar, but homemade version that lets you control exactly what you’re putting on and in your food. All of that deliciousness inside a resealable bag keeps everything nice and tidy, and then you toss it when you’re done. Talk about being easy-breezy.

Cook time is miraculously cut in half by butterflying your chicken breast horizontally into thin cutlets or, using a nice and thin, boneless chicken thigh. We personally love the extra flavor that chicken thighs add to any dish, but breasts are always great too with the seasonings of the recipe. After all, that is what this is about – satisfying flavors and convenience in one pan that makes life makes life easier and more delicious every time.
