Fiesta Chicken

Fiesta Chicken by

1/2 c butter
1 3/4 c cheddar cheese crackers, finely crushed
2 T taco seasoning mix
8 chicken breasts, boned, skinned, & flattened (sounds like a good stress reliever)
5 green onions, chopped
4 oz green chiles, chopped
2 c heavy cream
1 t instant chicken bouillon
2 c grated Monterey Jack cheese

1. Melt butter and pour 2/3 into 9x13" baking dish. Set aside.
2. Combine cracker crumbs and taco mix. Dredge chicken in this mixture. Pat it on so that you get a lot of the mix on the chicken. Place in baking dish.
3. In the saucepan with the butter, add the onions. Saute until softened. Then add green chiles, heavy cream, bouillon, and cheese. Mix and stir until smooth.
4. Pour over the chicken breasts. Bake uncovered 50-60 minutes.
Serves 6-8

In my opinion: this was really good. I think it would be good as enchiladas too. The only negative comment is it required a lot of dishes. Definitely not a "busy mom's meal."
