When life gives you leftover fried chicken, make nachos! Inspired by the flavours of Toronto-based The Heartbreak Chef’s Dutty Chicken Sandwich, these Dining In chicken and pineapple nachos with jerk sour cream pairs leftover spicy fried chicken with the sweetness of pineapple — and is then finished with red onion, jalapenos and loads of cheese. It’s a quick and simple dish for a late-night snack or game-day meal!
Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine sour cream and jerk sauce. Set aside until serving.
Layer about ⅓ of the tortilla chips on a round baking tray or skillet. Top with about ⅓ of cheese, fried chicken, pineapple, red onion and jalapeno peppers. Then repeat with another layer — ⅓ of the tortilla chips, cheese, chicken, pineapple, onion and jalapenos. Place the nachos in the oven to bake for 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
Remove the nachos and make another layer using the remaining ingredients, forming a pyramid. Return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and tortilla chips are beginning to brown.
To serve, spoon a large dollop of the jerk sour cream on the top of the nachos and sprinkle with green onions. Enjoy!
