Dinner is calling! Tonight, it’s Tex-Mex inspired, perfectly seasoned chicken, smothered in an ooey gooey cheese sauce. Made in under 20 min, with simple, easy-to-find ingredients. 


Ingredients

Toppings (optional): crushed tortilla chips, pickled jalapenos, Poco Picante Salsa

Preparation
  1. To thinly slice chicken, place one hand on one breast and press down firmly. Curve fingers up slightly for safety. Carefully slice meat horizontally. Repeat with remaining chicken. You should have four pieces in total. Season chicken with 1 tbsp hot dip mix.
  2. Heat oil in a large fry pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4–5 min per side until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare queso sauce. In Multipurpose Steamer, whisk remaining hot dip mix with milk. Microwave, uncovered on high for 4–5 min, or until thickened. Whisk halfway through cooking. Remove from microwave. Stir in grated cheddar.
  4. Thinly slice avocado. Cut lime into quarters.
  5. To serve, spoon queso sauce over chicken, top with avocado and lime. Add additional toppings, if desired.
