Chicken Nachos Recipe

chicken nachos recipe

We have sports fans in the house. My husband and my son don't miss a Montreal Canadiens game. They love to watch any sport on TV, but hockey is their favorite. They both played and they share the same passion for the sport. If we are going away for the night, my husband will make sure he records the game before we go, that's how passionate he is about it. We're so excited that the Habs won last night! 

On game nights, Chicken Nachos are a great recipe to make for sports fans. For my recipe I am using Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts. I like the fact that these chicken breasts are already thinly sliced because they cook faster. To make the chicken I marinate it in lime juice, garlic, chili powder, oregano and cilantro for a couple hours, the longer the better. You can prepare the chicken in the morning before going to work, and let it marinate all day.

The chicken can be cooked on the BBQ, the oven or in a pan. In the summer nothing beats the BBQ flavour. Once the chicken is fully cooked you can prepare the nachos. I like to serve these nachos with a sour cream Creama, and lots of fresh vegetables like tomatoes, green onions, green pepper and jalapeños. A plate of these Chicken Nachos doesn't last long in my house!

Are there any sports fans in your house? If so, what sports do they watch?

Chicken Nachos


Ingredients for Nachos:
450g Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts
Juice of 2 limes
3 cloves of garlic, minced
5 ml chili powder
5 ml oregano
1 bag Tex Mex Shredded Cheese
1 bag Tortilla chips
jalapeño, diced
green pepper, diced
tomatoes, diced
green onions, diced

250 ml sour cream
250 ml fresh cilantro
1 green onion, diced
1/2 jalapeño, diced
1 tbsp fresh lime juice

1- In a plastic bag mix the lime juice with garlic, chili powder and oregano. Add the chicken. Marinate at least 2 hours.
2- Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the chicken on a cookie sheet covered with foil. Bake until chicken is cooked. Remove from the oven and slice the chicken.
3- On a large cookie sheet place a piece of parchemin paper. Spread the Tortilla Chips on the cookie sheet. Top with 1-2 cups of shredded cheese. Place the pieces of chicken on top.
4- Broil in the oven until the cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes.
5- To prepare the Creama: mix the sour cream, fresh cilantro, green onion, jalapeños and fresh lime juice in a blender. Blend for about 30 seconds until the vegetables are shredded. Set aside.
6- When the cheese had melted, removed from the oven. Top with jalapeños, green peppers, tomatoes and green onions.
7- Serve with the Creama and salsa. Enjoy!


  1. I am a fan also!
    Years ago I was because I knew someone who was very involved with the maybe for 2 yearsO:-)
    Now that 3 of my grandsons who live across the street are avid fans..I got caught up in the frenzy.
    I love love love when Ginette sings..feel so bad for Carey Price..will wear a hockey shirt with his number Sunday while babysitting...
    Fingers crossed.
    This looks delicious!
    PS I cannot bear to see them lose a game..

    1. That is so nice that your grandsons live across the street. You can see them all the time. Ginette is in Ottawa this w-end. She is giving a show at the CNA. Hopefully they will have a good game on Sunday :) I have never met anyone that was involved or playing the Montreal Canadians but would like it :)

  2. We are HUGE sports fans here too Helene, and I can just imagine a plate full of these as my sons and I watch a Lakers or Dodgers game. Love this!

    1. Matt there's nothing like father-son watching a game. It's so fun, enjoy every minute you can spend with him :)
