How to Make Southwest Chicken Shells

Step-by-Step

  1. Shells: Cook and let cool
    Chicken: Cook and let cool (I usually boil the chicken by laying a coat of all of the dry seasonings in the boiling water.)
  2. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred it and put into a large frying pan. Also preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  3. On medium heat, add 1/3 of the honey mustard and bbq sauce and mix up. *If the chicken is still very dry, add more (equal parts) of the honey mustard and bbq sauce.
  4. Add a layer of the dry seasonings ontop of the now "wet" chicken and lower the heat.
  5. Add another 1/3 of the bbq and honey mustard along with another layer of onion powder and montreal chicken seasoning. *Also more red pepper if you like things spicy like me.*
  6. They consistency should be heated enough now to shut off the stove.
  7. Stuff each shell with the chicken and lay into a lightly greased baking pan. Put all of the cheese ontop of the shells, and bake covered for about 10-15 minutes.
