May Guest Cook Recipe: Monterrey Chicken

 our family just had this for dinner the other day. It is a wonderful chicken dish. My kids said it tasted like they were eating chicken enchiladas. We didn’t have fajita seasoning on hand so I mixed taco seasoning and some Don Sazon Meat Seasoning (from the Mexican market- we sprinkle it on carne asada).  I ended up sprinkling about 1 1/2 Tbsp. total all over the chicken.  This serves 4.
