    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.

    Great recipe! Adjusted the recipe alittle because I only had 2 chicken breasts. Wonderful flavor. I served over brown rice. Very filling. I can't wait to heat up the leftovers! Thanks Amie for the recipe.

    This was very flavorful, the kids loved it and ate it all up! My sister said it was better than Chili's. The only thing I omitted was the salsa. We aren't fans of it. Thank you Amie for the recipe, it's a keeper!
