Santa Fe Chicken
Here is another simple a great tasting recipe that my good friend Troy introduced me to. This one has become a staple at our house, making an appearance at least every other week.
The super moist chicken just falls apart! The touch of mexican spice that accompany it fill the entire house with an aroma that is unmistakeable and has my mouth watering.
Served on a bed of brown rice and some avocado, this recipe is simply AWSOME!
Give it a try and let me know how you liked it.
