Whole Foods Mexican Chicken

Super quick and easy to prepare, this recipe for Mexican Chicken is perfect for nachos, burritos, tacos, enchiladas, or Mexican rice bowls. 

This Whole Foods Mexican Chicken recipe is my spin on the packet version commonly found in supermarts. The supermarket versions are full of nasties and in my opinion, this version is much tastier and better for you minus all the additives. The bonus is by cooking from scratch you can make double batches easily to stock your freezer. Check out my tip below for making amazing Enchiladas.

  • 1 Tb oil
