This really easy recipe is a hit with my friends. It has a very good flavor and texture.

There are many ways to serve this - simply as a chicken breast with the vegetables on rice; or you can shred the chicken and serve it with tortillas for soft tacos.

You can use cheddar or Mexican style cheese. You can cook this in the oven in a casserole, and let the cheese melt and get browned. So versatile!
