Rotel Chicken

Kathy Cromer


Would you like a yummy spiced up dish? This dish is what you're looking for then! So creamy and delicious with the spice of Rotel tomatoes! I seasoned the chicken with garlic salt, cracked black pepper and Lawry's seasoned salt! I also added some minced garlic to the onions while they were sauteing! The velveeta and tomatoes warmed up nicely in the microwave in 3 minutes! I combined everything in the skillet that I sauteed the onions in, mixed well and then poured all into the casserole dish! Thanks Nancy, a friend of mine, for a wonderful recipe! My family loved this dish! I served it with soft dinner rolls.
