Shredded Chicken NachosEasy dinners are the best, aren’t they? I know sheet pan meals are all the rage right now (or, at least, I think they are still!), and they really are the ultimate easy meal solution. I always feel like the less dishes I can use, the better! A few weeks ago, I asked in a group I am in for some ideas for what to feed the missionaries for dinner when they came to our house for dinner, and someone suggested making BBQ chicken nachos. Ever since then, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. For some reason, it just sounded oh-so-delicious! So I finally got around to coming up with a recipe, and they turned out just as delicious as I was hoping. I made the BBQ chicken in my Instant Pot, which made for a really simple prep. However, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can use this recipe for slow cooker BBQ chicken or this one that can be made on the stove top. After you have the chicken made, all you have to do is pile on the toppings and cook for about 10 minutes. I do recommend broiling at the end but make sure you keep a careful eye on it. As you can probably tell, I let mine broil for about 30 seconds too long – and it got a little browner on top than I meant for it to be. It also looks a little darker since I used blue corn tortilla chips from Trader Joes, rather than a traditional white or yellow. But even with it being a little more done, these nachos tasted delicious. It might be one of my go to dinners from now on! So if you are looking for a delicious sheet pan nachos recipe – look no further. This will be a recipe you’ll want to make time and time again.
