Today I received a recipe for southwestern stuffed chicken from another place. I was appalled at it. I learned to make what was called Monterey Chicken from a local supermarket chain. One of the butchers was my wife's cousin. Here is the recipe, as I learned it, with some alternatives. The other was a very poor take on it.

This is only for one serving, adjust according to your needs.
