      OH WOW!!!! Not only did my man and I love this, I gave the recipe to my mom (who's a VERY advanced cook) to try, and she called me today raving about how much she and my dad loved it! THIS IS A WINNER--thank you so much! :)
      I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
      • It's terrific! I like a kick, so I upped the chili powder to 1/4 tsp. and used Hot enchilada sauce rather than mild. (Old El Paso). I also added some garlic powder. I sauteed the chicken in a little olive oil with salt, fresh black pepper and more garlic powder which made a terrific crust on the chicken. I think I finally have a party dish which is easy, inexpensive and really attractive. (I t hink it would be good Vegetarian too- with dark red kidney beans.)
