The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement ~ Queso Chicken

Hello comfort food!  This will make you feel like you are eating cheesy chicken, yet knowing it's not full of fat.  It was spicy enough that the hubby enjoyed, but not too much where it was too hot for the kids. 

  • 6 boneless chicken breasts 
  • 3 teaspoons Taco Seasoning
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded 
  • 1/4 cup light cream or 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 cup light may (optional, makes a bit creamier)
  • Squash & Zucchini, sliced & either steamed or cooked in a frying pan with olive oil  and 1 tbl butter (side dish)

10 ounce can Ro-tel tomatoes, drained (tomatoes with green chilies)
Season the chicken breasts with the taco seasoning. Grill and keep warm while preparing the queso sauce.
In a medium microwaveable bowl, mix the sour cream, cheese and milk or cream. Heat on stove over medium-high heat to melt the cheese; stir until well blended and creamy. Whisk in the mayonnaise until smooth then stir in the Ro-tel tomatoes. Microwave about 2 minutes on 50% power until heated through. Serve the sauce over the chicken. Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired, and serve the squash & zucchini as a side. 

Happy Eating Friends! ~ Trina
