Pollo Loco translates to crazy chicken which must be because most people who eat this dish are crazy for it, right? Haha.
The recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients and it comes together in under 30 minutes! The most work you need to do is slice up the chicken. Honestly, 25 minutes of the 30 minutes is hands off. That’s my style of cooking.
Also, VEEERY budget friendly! We all need a little more of that these days, unfortunately.
Stop what you are doing and go get the ingredients to make this Pollo Loco Casserole. It is the BEST!
This chicken is packed full of flavor, the cauliflower rice is easy and delicious and the cheese dip mixed in makes the dish!!!
Feel free to garnish the chicken with some diced tomatoes and cilantro.
If you love chicken and rice and Mexican food, then this Mexican chicken and vegetable rice with queso recipe is just for you. It is simple to put together thanks to the simplicity of using a ready made chicken it’s super speedy.
We hope you love it too!
