      Quick and easy, as promised, with a nice flavor! I used cheddar cheese (on hand) and added some chopped green onions with the cheese and chilies. Thanks for sharing!

      This is a great way to prepare chicken! It came out moist and full of flavor. It wasn't too spicy and the melted cheese on top just puts it over the top. Did not change a thing.
