      I'd never used Monteray Jack cheese before but found some at Costco and gave this a go, sort of a spin on Chicken Parmigiana, it was good but my BBQ sauce wasn't a very smoky one so that may have affected the end result of this, may try this again with a stronger tasting BBQ sauce for comparison.

      This recipe is ridiculously good! I've made it several times with mashed potatoes. DH and I fight for the leftovers. The only change I make is to season the chicken. Great great great recipe. Thanks for sharing!

      I love eating this out at restaurants and have been making it at home for a long time. But I've never tried this salsa before. The kids love monterey chicken but hate vegetables. I thought the salsa really added to an already favorite dish.
