Spicy au gratin chicken with crispy tortilla chips

Spicy au gratin chicken with crispy tortilla chips – the most delicious Mexican-inspired dish with spicy chicken baked in the oven with cheddar cheese and toppings and served with crispy tortilla chips ever. A scrumptious meal, perfect for the weekend or a hangover! I love Mexican food with spicy meat, guacamole, salsa, tortilla chips and loads of other delicacies. This dish is easy to make and tastes really good. The tortilla chips are tortilla pancakes cut into triangles and then fried in olive oil and sprinkled with salt. They taste so good and can be sprinkled with lots of different spices. Try these  nachos with delicious toppings or my homemade tacos with filling. Enjoy!

Spicy au gratin chicken

Heat the oven to 200 C convection.

Cut the chicken breasts into cubes and brown them in a pan with olive oil along with the Fajita spices. Put the chicken into an ovenproof dish, if necessary. Line it with baking paper. Fry the onions, garlic and peppers in the pan until ready. Add the corn and spread it over the chicken. Bake the chicken in the oven for 15 min. Then sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bake for another 15 min.

Crispy tortilla chips

Cut the pancakes into small triangles. Heat a pan with oil and fry the tortilla chips until crispy and golden. Place the tortilla chips on kitchen roll so it can soak up any extra oil, and sprinkle with salt.

Top the spicy au gratin chicken with jalapenos, salsa and sour cream. Serve the crispy tortilla chips with guacamole. Buen provecho!
