Monterey Chicken Casserole

I clipped this from an Ortega ad in a magazine. I usually cook my chicken breasts in my George Foreman grill. You could also sub those pre cooked chicken tenders if you're pressed for time.

This was really easy and the family liked it. My daughter has to eat gluten-free so this was a welcome addition to our recipe collection. I didn't have the taco shells, but did have white corn tortilla chips that i crushed. Also, I didn't have instant rice, so I just made regular rice and cooked it before adding it to the casserole. It only needed to bake about 25 to 30 minutes then.

Thanks for this recipe!!! The only change I made was that I subbed Nacho Cheese Doritos for the crumbled taco shells.
