Servings: Ingredients:


NOTE: Always add sugar to tomatoes.

Sugar brings out the tomato flavor.

3 large whole chicken breasts, boned

(I also skin mine)

1-2 T butter

1 medium onion, chopped (fine is better)

1 clove fresh garlic, minced

2 stalks celery celery, chopped

1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies

1 (1 pound) can stewed tomatoes

1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 1/2 T cooking oil

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp sugar

salt and pepper to taste

  1. Add the oil to a frying pan. Brown chicken until done. Then place the chicken into a shallow baking pan and set aside while you brown the rest of the ingredients except for the cheese.
  1. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Sprinkle all the grated cheese on top.
  1. Broil 3 inches from the broiler until the cheese melts and begins to bubble. Serve immediately.
