This is a one dish chicken breast recipe that is sure to please everyone. You can omit the stuff you don’t like, we left out the cilantro since neither Nick nor I care for the taste, and add what you do like.
We enjoyed our Chicken Breasts Fiesta Style for lunch.
The meal was rounded out with pita chips and cut up watermelon on the side. This baked chicken dish would also make a wonderful dinner with a serving of flavored rice, a baked potato or buttered noodles as a side dish.
