Taco Casserole with Chicken

When it comes to feeding my family I need to make sure I’m making items that all of the kids LOVE. I can say this without hesitation. My kids love tacos and my kids love chicken. It only seemed appropriate that a Taco Casserole with Chicken would be an easy go to meal for everyone. There’s just certain things that you know and this one I knew 100% (and I was correct!).

I’ve partnered with Perdue Farms this year and I’m loving that I’m taking the time to find recipes that use Perdue! I’ve said this before, but I want to say it again. I’m a big fan of Perdue because they care about their customers. They have a passion to bring the best possible food to families and I love that about them. I was so impressed with them, I even wrote a blog post on What I Learned at Perdue Farms.

Let me share with you this amazing recipe for Taco Casserole with Chicken that calls for the use of Perdue Chicken breasts.

I love that this dish only has 5 steps, it’s something that I look for when I’m trying to find recipes to make for my family. I’m not someone who has the time or the energy to create a recipe with 10 or more steps. I like easy as can be because that’s about all I can handle! I love that this recipe is something I can toss together while the kids are doing homework, too. I don’t have to do major prep work ahead of time.

When it comes to the food you feed your family, quality matters. And while there are a lot of options out there, Perdue Farms stands apart. In business for 100 years, we are a fourth-generation, family owned American food and agriculture business that from the beginning has worked with family farmers across the country and strived to promote animal welfare, source the grain that goes into our animal feed and thoughtfully tend the land in our care. The Perdue family and company leaders conduct business based on how each decision will not only affect the next quarter but the next generation of consumers.

Farming techniques that are now considered trendy have been a part of our practice for years – we just never felt the need to fuss about them. Perdue chickens are fed a 100% USDA-certified vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. We’re proud that all of our animals are raised with absolutely no hormones* and no antibiotics ever, and we are actively advancing our animal care programs. And we prioritize green practices – being good environmental stewards will help us continue to produce wholesome food for generations to come.

We think going the extra mile makes a difference in the way our food tastes – and we’re confident that you’ll agree when you sample our selection of products. To deliver the highest quality, we freeze and vacuum pack items at the peak of freshness and follow food safety practices that in many cases exceed USDA requirements. We designed your shopping experience to be convenient and offer a great selection of simple-to-prepare food.
