      Very good! I made this with the green chilies. Served with Southwest Rice and Corn Pilaf, warm tortillas and diced avocado. It all complimented very well. Will make this again for sure. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.

      My friend and I had this for dinner with baked potatoes and whole wheat rolls and we really enjoyed it. I only used 2 chicken breast halves and used all the mixture for the top and it was excellent. I opted to use the green chilies for a milder flavor, as I have a woss for a neighbor who doesn't like anything too hot. I may try it another time with jalapenos to turn up the heat a little, but it was delicious with the chilies too! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Lazyme! Made for The 8th Annual Photo Swap
