Mmmmm! Mmmmm! GOOOOD!

If you like enchiladas you will love this recipe!

Enchilada Chicken

4 (4 oz)bonless, skinless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons salt-free Mexican or Southwest seasoning(I used Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle)
Olive oil spray
4 Tablespoons enchilada sauce (I used green chile enchilada sauce)
2 oz (2 cups) light cheddar cheese
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat oven to 350*

Season each chicken breast evenly on all sides with the seasoning

Place a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over high heat. When hot, lightly mist with the olive oil spray and add the chicken. Cook, turning once, for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or just until the chicke is golden brown on the outsides.

Remove the pan from the heat and top each chicken breat with 1 tablespoon of the enchilada sauce, followed by one-fourth of the cheese and one fourth of the cilantro. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 4-6 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink inside and the cheese is melted.

They probably won't know how lucky they are until they are all grown up and trying to care for themselves...and of course I will adopt you! We will have to have you over for dinner one night when I make this again!
