Santa Fe Chicken

Shelia Baker


I should probably call this "Santa Faux Chicken" because it's not spicy, but it is very flavorful. It made a wonderful soup for lunch and a great casserole for dinner, with a side salad. Give it a try...remember, you can always add some "kick" if you like it hot :)

** If you're interested, this could be put into a crock-pot and simmered on low for a few hours with no problem**
