I have made this one for a lot of years because I can easily remember the ingredients in it. There are only 6 and most of them I usually have on hand. I hope this becomes a staple in your busy home, too!

How to Make Super Quick Taco Chicken


  • 1Cut chicken tenders up in small bite size pieces. (I prefer chicken tenders to chicken breasts as they are much more tender and tasty.)
  • 2Brown chicken in a bit of oil in a dutch oven till none of the chicken is pink anymore. Try not to overcook tho. Set aside.
  • 3Add chicken broth, tomato sauce, water from the corn, and taco seasoning to dutch oven and bring to a boil for 5 minutes but not much more.
  • 4Add chicken in and stir to make sure it is all covered. Then quickly stir in Minute Rice, cover and take off heat.
  • 5Let set for 5 minutes. Uncover then fluff rice. It's ready to serve.
    I serve mine with cold apple sauce sprinkled with cinnamon and bread and butter fold overs. (I love the cold applesauce against the hot-off-the-stove taco chicken and cinnamon is a perfect complement to Mexican spices.)
  • 6This can even be made ahead and frozen for later. When you go to reheat it, use a little bit of chicken broth to revitalize it. Use chicken broth if you have some you want to reheat the next day, as well.
