    How easy was that? My butcher gets freakishly large chickens, so one breast-half was MORE than enough for the two of us. I sliced it against the grain, and fanned it over spanish rice. I did cook two, so the other one I will use in wraps or burritos tonight. Really moist, flavourful chicken, thanks!

    Yum! This was a real fast meal to prepare. I covered the pan with foil just to keep in the steam, and then left uncovered for the cheese at the end. I have made chicken like this before but never with the taco seasoning. I think that is what gave this dish the extra umph! Thanks for posting

    This chicken is super moist and the taco seasoning adds a little bit of a different twist. I like to use Pepper Jack cheese also. I discovered this recipe several months ago and it has quickly become a requested recipe at our house. Thanks for posting!

    I’ve made this recipe before from another site. Very yummy! A little too spicy for my family but I really liked it.

    This is such a great Mexican flavor with very little work! My husband and 2 year old daughter devoured it! I served it with Mexican rice and a green bean dish I make. Wonderful, and totally practical! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
