Queso Smothered Chicken

I'm a sucker for anything covered in cheese. I just love it. So, when I found this recipe floating around Pinterest, I knew I would be making it right away! I did tweak the recipe a bit to make it more ww friendly and I served mine over brown rice instead of orzo but it was still a hit. It was creamy, spicy, and delicious!

Queso Smothered Chicken
Heavily Adapted from Plain Chicken
Serves 4
WW PP=9 (Chicken +1 cup rice)
Cal 378, Fat 6.7g, Carbs 35g, Fiber 2g, Protein 39.2g

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup southwestern chipotle marinade
1 1/2 cups reduced fat shredded American cheese blend
1 can Rotel
4 cups hot cooked brown rice

Pour marinade over chicken and seal in a Ziploc baggie. Marinate for 1-2 hours.

Grill chicken 8 minutes per side or until juices run clear

While the chicken is cooking, combine your rotel and cheese in a saucepan over low heat. Stirring often until cheese is melted and mixture is well combined.

Serve by placing some of the rice on a plate, followed by some of the cheese sauce, chicken, and top with more cheese sauce. Enjoy!
