“I found this recipe in an issue of Good Housekeeping back in the early 80's,when Southwestern/Mexican recipes were hard to come by - at least here in Wisconsin . It's like a Southwestern version of Chicken Parmesan. I used to use Pace Picante on it, but you can adjust it with any salsa or heat level you prefer. I also added the green chiles because I love them! Also would accompany this chicken with home-made Mexican rice, and a picante-based vegetable "stew."”
