In my quest to find a healthy Cinco de Mayo dish, I found this one. I drained the tomatoes and used an enchilada sauce instead. I also added green onions. My boyfriend keeps going back for more!



Overall, this was a very good recipe. I didn't drain the tomatoes and it got a bit watery. Next time, I might mix some shredded cheese in with the tomato mixture to thicken it up a bit. It tasted good, though. My 3 yr old loved it, but my 5 yr old just picked the chicken out of it and wouldn't eat anything else :p



This was okay for an easy reduced fat dinner idea. I liked not having to precook the chicken before assembling the casserole. The cheese on top dried out while baking.The flavor was okay but the top looked overdone.I would try to wait to add the cheese twenty minutes into the cooking time.
