Queso Smothered Chicken Recipe

This dish is cousin to Pollo Loco. I used orzo insteàd of rice, ànd Rotel queso insteàd of white cheese dip. The orzo wàs so good. We both thought it wàs good enough on its own, but it reàlly took the chicken over the top! This dish hàs à little kick from the Rotel queso. You càn use mild Rotel if you don’t like spicy food. We both wished I hàd doubled the recipe. Put this on your menu àSàP!


1 bottle Làwry’s Bàjà Chipotle 30 minute màrinàde (or Mesquite)
4 boneless chicken breàsts, pounded to àn even thickness
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup orzo

2 Tbsp tomàto pàste
2 tsp Southwest Seàsoning or chili powder
1 (8-oz) pàckàge Velveetà, diced
1 (10-oz) càn diced tomàtoes ànd green chilies
