Ingredients

  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 capsicums, chopped
  • 2 x 400g cans baked beans (Mexican flavoured)
  • 400 g skinless chicken breast, sliced in half lengthways and chopped
  • 1 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, grated

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced).
  2. Combine onion, capsicum and canned beans in a large ovenproof dish.
  3. Place chicken pieces into bean mix and press down so they are covered by sauce.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove foil, sprinkle with cheese and bake for a further 5 – 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through and cheese has browned.
  5. Divide between plates and serve immediately.

Variations

  • Add chilli flakes and fresh coriander for extra flavour.
  • Mexican flavoured baked beans are usually in the supermarket with the baked beans. If unavailable, swap for:
  • - No-added-salt baked beans + 1 tablespoon smoked paprika + 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • - Red kidney beans or other beans + jar of salsa

    Shouldn't take that long if your chicken is chopped like it says?

    This will take a lot longer in the oven then it says. I think it should say to pan fry the chicken and veg before putting it in the oven as it took an hour and 15 mins to cook!
