We all love nachos, am I right! They are the perfect family dinner recipe, game day appetizer, or a delicious party snack food. We took a classic nacho recipe to the next level by topping the tortilla chips with juicy BBQ chicken, melty cheese, jalapenos, and drizzled with Queso Blanco. These oven baked nachos are sure to become a crowd pleaser.

There are a couple things that make these sheet pan nachos a breeze to make. You can use a rotisserie chicken, your favorite store-bought BBQ sauce and Queso Blanco. Top the BBQ chicken nachos with some of your favorite toppings such as red onions, pickled jalapenos, or even crumbled bacon bits. It’s a perfect recipe to customize to your families liking.

1-Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

2-In a medium size bowl mix cooked shredded chicken and your favorite BBQ sauce until well combined.

3-On the prepared baking sheet layer half of the tortilla chips, half of the cooked BBQ chicken, and half of the shredded cheese. Continue with the remaing chips, BBQ chicken, and shredded cheese.

Additional Toppings

These BBQ chicken nachos are delicious as it, but I’ve added a few other toppings for your chicken nachos.

  • Ranch Dressing
  • Sour Cream
  • Crumbled Bacon
  • Black Beans
  • Corn

Can I Reheat Oven Baked Nachos?

These nachos are best when eaten right out of the oven. You can make the BBQ chicken ahead of time and keep it covered in the fridge for a couple days. You don’t want to assemble the nachos too far in advance or you will risk the tortilla chips getting soggy.

Why Make Nachos On A Sheet Pan?

Making nachos on a sheet pan is one of my favorite ways to make nachos. You can evenly layer the chips and toppings so that every layer is bursting with flavor. The nachos and topping will cook more evenly, and the cheese gets nice and melty. I also love how you can customize the nachos to everyone’s liking.

Tips For Making BBQ Chicken Nachos

1-You can use rotisserie chicken, prebaked chicken, or place chicken breasts in an instant pot and shred.

2-Be sure to spread the chips and toppings evenly so that every bite is loaded with flavor.

3-Baked nachos in a preheated oven and with the oven rack placed in the middle.
