Great recipe. I worked at Chili's for a couple of years and absolutely love this dish. The only thing is in order to make it truly authentic you need to cook the chicken on a gas grill, not over the stove, and it's best to melt the cheese under a broiler. That's how they do it at the restaurant. Other than that it's perfect :-)
