How to make our Mexican Corn Chicken Bake:
Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a greased 9×13 baking dish, place the thin-sliced chicken breast in one even layer, trying to keep the meat from laying on top of each other. This helps with even cooking.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the green chiles, diced cilantro, cheddar cheese, taco seasoning, corn, and cream cheese.
- If the cream cheese is cold, soften in the microwave for 45 seconds. You will want to completely mix all the ingredients and cold cream cheese makes that super difficult!
Once mixture is completely combined, even spread it over the chicken breasts. Place in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 40 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 F.
Remove from oven and serve! Garnish with extra cilantro and shredded cheese if desired!
