Fast easy chicken for weeknights - whole family loves. Easy to adjust for "spicyness", change from Montery Jack w/Jalapeno to regular Montery Jack Cheese and skip the chiles. I Serve with fresh salsa and avacado. I make boxed yellow rice as a side. (Notes: Don't be afraid of the Doritos and works very well with frozen bagged chicken breasts)
