Southwestern Cheesy Chicken Recipe

**NOTE FROM KELLI:  This is my 2nd most popular recipe on this site!  Be sure to go see the rest of the top ten most popular recipes at Southern mom Cooks!

I was sent a couple different Kraft FreshTake items to try out. Several people asked for the recipe, so it seemed like a good idea to get it posted on here.  This was the easiest dinner to make and literally (not including cooking time) only took me about 10 minutes!

*I served the chicken with a can of corn and some Knorr Dirty Rice.  So easy! Perfect for those nights when you need something quick.  The way the boys raved, you would think it took me all day to make!

If you would like, you can watch my video of how to use the new Kraft FreshTake!

Kraft Foods provided the product sample for this review at no cost to me; however, Kraft Foods is not a sponsor and the opinions expressed here are my own.
