So have you ever gone to Chili's...well I'm sure you have, but anyway, have you ever gone there and ordered the Monterey Chicken??? You know the yummy one with the chicken breast covered in bacon and cheese and then topped with green onions and it's served with Garlic Mashed Potatoes??? (at least mine always is lol)
Well it's my favorite Chili's dish, it's what I always have, so when I was looking through my new "Fix it and Enjoy it" cookbook and I saw the recipe, I just knew I had to try it.
Try I did, last night, and there were a few mumblings around the table, not in a bad way, because I set the chicken down and said "Don't touch it, I need to get a picture for the blog" and before I came back with the camera, the chicken was almost gone.....YEAH, it tastes JUST like Chili's and OH.MY.WORD is all I can say.
So here you go, try it, you might be lucky and have your hubby say what mine did...."Sandra, you ROCK, from now on whenever you serve chicken in this house, THIS is how I want it". LOL
