Santa Fe Chicken

For this recipe, you will need four chicken breasts that have been seasoned with salt and pepper. You will also need two cups of mozzarella cheese, finely shredded. Next, you will need a small onion and a green bell pepper. Finally, you will need a small can of Ro*tel.

The first step to this recipe is to tenderize your chicken, and season it. Place your chicken in a shallow baking dish, and bake it at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on its thickness. (If you want to cut your baking time, you can saute the chicken breasts first, and cook them in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes, instead.)

While your chicken is baking, you can be dicing your onion and bell pepper. When the chicken is close to finished, with 7 to 10 minutes of cooking time left, pour the can of Ro*tel over the breasts. Follow that by sprinkling your onions and peppers over the chicken. Finally, add your cheese over the top of your dish. Cook it for the remaining time.

Place your chicken breasts on plates, and serve with sour cream on top. This should feed four people. Enjoy!
