They are easy to assemble, cook unattended in the oven and allow you the freedom to tend to other things.
This is an extremely easy Mexican style chicken dish.
You can use bone in or boneless chicken pieces. I used leg quarters here as that what was on sale that day.
If you don't have cilantro on hand, just increase the oregano to 2 tsp or substitute parsley.
Anything with melted cheese on it is a sure winner in our house. I used a blend of cheddar and mozzarella. Monterey Jack would work well too.
Everyone really enjoyed this dish and the leftovers tasted amazing tucked into a flour tortilla for lunch the next day
Hmmm lets see...easy preparation, all around rave reviews at dinner and a tasty lunch.
