Cheddar-Chicken Surprise

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by hepcat1

Tastes just like it cheddar and chicken. Nothing fancy here, just a little cheese to brighten up some boring ol' chicken. The great thing about this recipe, though, is its versatility...use taco cheese and green chiles; mozzarella and italian bread get the picture. I just know it's darn tasty however you make it!
