Queso Grilled Chicken

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare chicken and it doesn't get much better than spicy cheese and chicken. (at least in my house) Since today is normally Taco Tuesday I decided to stick with Mexican for dinner. A fun and delicious twist for Taco Tuesday!

Queso Grilled Chicken
Serves 4
WW PP=10
Cal 405, Carbs 52, Fat 6, Fiber 2, Carbs 37

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup southwestern chipotle marinade
1 1/2 cups shredded American cheese blend
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chopped green chiles (I used Jalapeno's)
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 tomatoes, peppers, 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!
