I am calling this the Walmart meal because I found that since most of the ingredients are prepackaged, this simple meal can be created without any specialty ingredients. I was able to buy EVERYTHING at Walmart (even though I already had milk, corn, and eggs at home. Walmart is one of the places I visited while stuck in Ohio due to the unfortunate weather. This recipe is all over the internet in different versions so here is mine once again a little adjusted. I like it because it was quick and an easy one pot dish that can easily be reheated.
- 12 Oz chicken
- 10oz red enchilada sauce
- 2 egg whites
- 1/3c milk
- 1c frozen corn
- 4oz diced green chiles
- taco seasoning
- shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 8.5oz box of corn muffin mix**
** 8.5 oz boxes do not seem to exist. I could only find 7.5 or 16 so i went for 7.5 which was perfect.
1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Combine the first 7 ingredients (milk through green chiles), using just ½ tablespoon of the taco seasoning, in a large bowl, stirring just until moist. Pour mixture into a round pie plate (mine was glass) coated with cooking spray.
3. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes. While corn is baking, toss the chicken in the remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning. When corn is done – it will be just barely set and golden brown – pierce entire surface liberally with a fork. Pour enchilada sauce over top. Top with chicken; sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces; top each serving with cilantro and cheese.
