This is delicious! Even better if you shred the chicken. We checked the calorie count as it seemed low and came up with closer to 300. Will definitelyy make again!

Great dish. I cooked this in my non-stick electric skillet and omitted the olice oil. I also substitutes Rotel for the plain tomatoes since we like things spicey. Served over cilantro-lime brown rice. Yum!

This was fantastic. Used a can of Rotel with Chiles in place of the diced tomatoes. Gave it a little extra kick.

So flavorful and definitely has a kick!! I served mine in a bowl over a baked potato and added a just pinch of shredded mozzarella cheese, for the heck of it.
