A sprinkling of ready-made taco seasoning is the simple start to the delicious grilled chicken in this South-of-the-Border dish, topped with melted cheese and salsa.
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lb)
tablespoons vegetable oil
tablespoons Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1 oz package)
slices (3/4 oz each) Monterey Jack cheese
cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Brush both sides of chicken with oil; sprinkle with taco seasoning mix.
Place chicken on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning once and topping each chicken breast with cheese during last minute of cooking time, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Serve chicken topped with salsa.
Enjoy the chicken with a cool citrus salad of sliced oranges, grapefruit sections and avocado slices.
Vary the flavor of this easy entree by changing the cheese. Why not try Cheddar or mozzarella instead of the Monterey Jack?
