Super Tasty Lite Mexican Chicken Casserole
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
14 ingredients
8 servings
This is one of my most requested "chicken stuff" recipes. I found it in the Cooking Light magazine (around 1998). Most of my friends don't even know that it is a ligher version of a rich calorie laden recipe because it is so tasty. I usually serve with a mixed green salad and my version of Mexican rice. This is great left over cold or hot!
