Ingredients

    4 half chicken breast pounded thin and cut in half
    Olive oilchopped

    Onion 1 medium chopped
    2 Peppers medium
    4 cloves minced

    Enchilada sauce 1 cup
    4 oz Cream Cheese cut in small pieces
    6oz cheese (cheddar or other) shredded into two equal portions

Directions

Pound chicken breast until very thin - if laarge cut them in half - mine were to large next time Iwill cut the breast in half.

Brown the chicken in apan until they are golden brown using part of the oil - a smaller pan and browning one chicken piece at a time works better than cooking more than one. Place each chicken piece in a pan after browned.

cut up onion and peppers (I used 1 green and 1 red pepper for color. fry in pan after chicken is done unitl onions are soft, add garlic gloves and remove mixture frompan.

Add enchilada sauce and chunks of the cream cheese until cream cheese meltsthoughout, then add 1/2 of the cheese. I used pepperjack instead of cheddar. Stir until melted.

layer chicken, cover with pepper mixture, smother in sauce and top with remaining cheese.

Cook in oven at 350 degrees until golden brown and bubbly about 20 minutes.

Let cool 10minutes.

    Great recipe - especially if you are trying to serve a paleo & non-paleo family. I served with brown rice and everyone enjoyed it. Very satisfying and does feel like you are eating something you shouldn't! Olives might be a nice addition. - 1/5/14
