diego chicken

We enjoyed this HALL OF FAME entree last night.  Grilling in severe temperatures isn't ideal but SO worth it.  My husband and I agreed that it was the green chiles that made it hall of fame.  We'll be making this one again and again for sure.

diego chicken (found it in my SIL Heidi's ward cookbook then adapted it)
3 chicken breasts, fileted
2 teaspoons Pappy's garlic and herb seasoning
1 can whole roasted green chiles (my can contained 4)
your favorite salsa or picante sauce
grated cheese (I used Mexican blend)
1 avocado, thinly sliced
fat free sour cream
shredded lettuce, optional for serving

Place the chicken breasts on a preheated grill and sprinkle with Pappy's.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  When the chicken is done, place on a cookie sheet with sides and assemble in the following order:  chicken, sprinkle of grated cheese (this will secure the green chile), 1 slice green chile, 2 tablespoons picante sauce, sprinkle of cheese.  Put into the oven until the cheese melts.  Take out of the oven and add the avocado and sour cream.  Place on a bed of shredded lettuce and serve!

What I have to say- we served grilled chicken with melted cheese to our kiddos whom we knew may not enjoy all the good stuff!
