Easy Chicken Nachos Recipe

Well, thankful all those fantasy drafts are out of the way! I’m not sure if you experienced that but my husband is in like 4 leagues and I think he had one on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Happy Labor Day weekend to me! haha

Although, the one on Sunday was fun because Mike put together a father son league with Cason. So we hosted a draft with bunch of dads and their sons at our house. I made game day food, like wings, nachos and fries. It was so much fun, plus so adorable to see all the little boys with their dads, it seriously made my heart melt. 

With next weekend being opening day weekend I wanted to make sure you had an easy no fuss game day recipe on hand, and believe me these 20 Minute Sheet Pan Chicken Nachos are it!

How to make Chicken Nachos in the Oven?

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray.
  3. Spread tortilla chips out on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of cheese to the tortillas. Then add black beans, corn,  red onion and shredded rotisserie chicken.
  5. Add remaining cheese to the top.
  6. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. Until cheese is melted and tortilla chips are slightly browned.
  7. Top with toppings of your choice.

I like to top my nachos with either a fresh pico de gallo, always sliced avocado and jalapeños for some spice. For todays recipe, I made a quick little yogurt based cilantro lime crema that adds a nice creamy tartness to the nachos. It’s not necessary but you’ll love it! Trust me!

I’m pretty sure these nachos are going to be a favorite this football season for me. I couldn’t believe how easy it was and we actually had them for dinner, which was a fun change up to our normal dinner routine. I even did a short cut and used store bought rotisserie chicken, so literally all you’re doing is assembling the nachos and putting them in the oven. Can’t get easier than that and it’s definitely a fan favorite!

So? When are you going to make them! Let me know. Even better yet, tag me in a photo or story on Instagram and I’ll share it!

Bon Appetit friends!
