Chicken Mexicali

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by joy.williamson

This recipe is a great summer recipe for using excess zucchini. It's the only dish using zucchini that I'll eat. Other zucchini hates I know also love this dish. If you're short on time grab a roasted chicken from the supermarket. Also, to keep from heating up the kitchen in the summer, I cook this in an electric skillet. Easy cleanup is a plus.

This dish was extremely easy to make with leftover cooked chicken. Great Mexican flavor and easy clean-up with only one pan to wash. I used one 16-ounce jar on Pace picante sauce, and about 2 cups of mixed cheddar-jack cheese. Great served with hot flour tortillas.
