Cheesy Tex-Mex Chicken

Happy Cinco De Mayo! In honor of the Holiday I'm making one of our favorite chicken dishes. This Cheesy Tex Mex Chicken is easy and ridiculously good! I like to add a little cayenne pepper for an extra spicy kick! If you like chicken, cheese, and spice...well, you will definitely enjoy this dish!

Cheesy Tex-Mex Chicken
Serves 4
WW PP=10
Cal 405, Carbs 52, Fat 6, Fiber 2, Carbs 37

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used tenderloins)
1/2 cup southwestern chipotle marinade
1 1/2 cups shredded American cheese blend
1 can Rotel
4 cups orzo pasta cooked to al dente

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 one cup orzo on a plate, followed by some of the cheese sauce, chicken, and top with more cheese sauce. Enjoy!
