How to Make Southwest Potatoes and Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Scrub potatoes. Cut in half lengthwise and then slice into 1/4 inch thick half moons. Cut chicken into 1/2 inch strips. If using chicken tenders, no slicing is needed. Put chicken, tomatoes and taco seasoning in microwave safe dish and stir to combine. Layer sliced potatoes on top of the chicken mixture in a single layer, leaving the center empty for venting. Top with cheese. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and microwave on high for 12 minutes, or until potatoes and chicken are done. Test with a fork. If using plastic wrap, use oven mitts or tongs to remove it from the dish to avoid burns from the steam. Let stand for 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
