When you’re b-o-r-e-d with plain old grilled chicken breasts, these delicious and easy Mexican chicken recipes will help you to find the fun in chicken again.

1. Chicken Fajitas with Chipotle

First up on our best Mexican Chicken Recipes is a favourite dish at your local Mexican restaurant that is super easy to make at home – yes, Chicken Fajitas! We think you might even find that our version is the best chicken fajitas recipe thanks to the flavour you get from our chipotle chicken fajita marinade. Our secret ingredient is our smoky Chipotle Paste which adds some Mexican magic and gives a great depth of flavour to the chicken. So delicious mixed with freshly squeezed lime juice, dried oregano, olive oil and salt and pepper.

2. Mexican Chicken Soup

This Mexican chicken soup always impresses regardless of whether it’s for a mid-week lunch or a starter for a Mexican dinner party. Chicken and black bean is a popular combination in Mexico and this Mexican soup recipe has been inspired by Fergus our founders trip to San Miguel.  

3. Chicken Traybake

We think that traybakes, one-pan or one-pot meals are the perfect answer to feed your loved ones, as they have all the flavour without all of the hassle. Besides, what’s not to love about an easy chicken traybake with a bit of Chipotle Paste and Chipotle Honey mixed in with delicious Mexican chicken juices and vegetables? We think it’s a very practical one of our Mexican chicken recipes.

4. Easy Chicken Nachos

When it comes to Nachos it’s always handy to have a quick chicken nachos recipe for a movie night in, one that doesn’t involve hours of preparation and that you can put together in no time. Our Easy Chicken Nachos is just that recipe! It’s perfect for two people but can easily be increased depending on how many are watching that film together.

13. Pollo Asado

“Pollo Asado” or grilled chicken in English, is a very popular dish you can normally find in well-known franchised takeaways all over Mexico. The dish is all about the Pollo Asado seasoning, or marinade, and letting your chicken absorb all the flavours before cooking it. So make sure to leave enough time for marinating before cooking!

14. Chicken Quesadilla

Lastly for our Mexican Chicken Recipes is this easy Chicken Quesadilla recipe.  This is a great recipe to do early in the week, after that Sunday roast. It incorporates the breast and dark meat from half a cooked roast chicken. We have made our own fresh salsa, but if you wanted it even easier you could use Gran Luchito Chipotle Salsa.

15. Chicken Burrito

This is a classic Chicken Burrito recipe made with tender slow-cooked chicken using our Chipotle Paste for a delicious, smoky flavour. It’s our go-to Mexican burrito recipe and there’s a reason we keep coming back to it!
