Mouth-watering Open-Face Chicken Taco Bake

Happy belated Cinco de Mayo, let us celebrate with my stunning open-face chicken taco bake!

Out of tacos but still craving them? Dreading the work to make tortilla from scratch? Not feeling like hand food but something family style for Mexican night? This creative Open-Face could be the answer to your what’s for dinner question!! ⁠

Guacamole close up with wooden spoon

This recipe sneaks in Jerusalem artichoke with the scalloped potatoes to give it extra nutty flavor and nutrient boost. The potato base absorbs all the flavor from the chicken, and the guacamole topping adds so much freshness to the meal!⁠

Which cut of meat is best for this chicken taco bake?

As the seasoning of this dish is more on the lighter, tangy side, I would recommend a white meat like chicken breast or minced turkey!

What tools do I need to make this recipe?

As steam-baking is the key cooking method here, I recommend (Affiliate link) this steam oven.

If you do want to bake casserole dishes and pies often, a good pie dish like (Affiliate link) this can be a worthwhile investment!
