This is an adaptation of a recipe from "30 Minute Meals". This is a mildly flavored chicken dish that isversatile and easy, simply stuff into taco shells, fold into burritos, or make chicken nachos--top tortilla chips with this chicken, some cheese, and favorite toppings and bake until cheese melts.
