Recipe by loriyeargan

Yummy way to use chicken breasts. For more of a Mexican taste, you can also put some sliced jalapenos in with the cheese. The prep time also includes the 1 hour chill time.

I made this recipe for "Pick Your Chef" game. I chose to use Gruyere cheese,and the oregano was over powering.I think with the Gruyere,basil would have worked better. This recipe will go to my make again file.Thanks Lori for sharing.
