    8 servings


  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each)

      This was so easy to make and super, super delicious! I even avoided using tortillas to eat it with, and just put it in a bowl with some cole slaw mix on top and the peanuts. It was so tasty. My friend did not like the ingredients but she tried it was very impressed with how good it was. This will remain in the rotation for sure. I used only 4 chicken breasts because they were larger than 6 oz. so didn't need six, but either way, this makes a TON of food. Now only question would be for Taste of Home to answer if it can be frozen? I would highly recommend trying this just the way the recipe calls for it.
