Chipotle chicken breast on a bed of onions and peppers – all made so simple (and guilt-free) with this tray bake recipe.
I recently discovered M&S’s sell a chipotle paste – I’m obsessed and so inspired to cook everything smothered in it. Chipotle is a smoked chilli pepper – often used in Mexican food. Whilst it’s super popular in America I don’t feel like the UK have embraced it quite yet.
Here’s one of my most recent go-to mid-week recipes for chipotle chicken tray bake.
Not only is this recipe super delicious – it’s also easy and healthy – a real crowd pleaser ideal for a mid-week family dinner or to feed guests on a summers evening.
I tend to cook a more chicken than needed when I make this – so we have enough for dinner then lunch the following day. Serve this chipotle chicken with salad, chips, rice – or even in a wrap with cool mayo.
Follow the steps below to make the perfect Chipotle chicken tray bake. I often make Indian and Chinese inspired tray bakes – if you’d like to see these please let me know in the comments below or connect me on Facebook.
