    Found this recipe on a package of chicken breasts, been making it from memory ever since. Very tasty, and very easy. Great weeknight meal with mexican rice and salad. Hearty eaters may want tortillas, too.

      This had good flavor, but was a lot more "soupy" than I expected it to be. I cut my chicken into strips before putting in the casserole. I served this with tortillas to mop up all the juice. Quick and easy weeknight meal.

      Very yummy! My husband raved about this one and he has a rather gourmet palate. It turned out a lot more soupy than I expected (though it did thicken after it cooled) so I was glad I served it over rice to soak up all that wonderful Mexican gravy. I didn't have avocado, but it didn't need it. I might add a can of green chilies and/or sliced olives next time, just for added texture and zip, but it was wonderful as is.

      This made a nice, easy dish for an evening I didn't feel like fussing over dinner. I added seasoning to the breasts and cut into strips, so I reduced the baking time. Served with Mexican rice. Thanks for posting this simple, weeknight recipe!
