Healthy Mexican Chicken Bake

I was feeling all creative n stuff…and I wanted mexican food without sabotaging all of my weight loss efforts.

A meal at a sit down restaurant averages about 1,300 calories. The whole pan of this is 2380 calories!!! Cheese and all!!! (But don’t eat the whole pan LOL) The pan can be broken into 5 servings at 476 calories per serving.

Ingredients:
5 skinless chicken breasts
1, 16 oz jar of Pace salsa, original
1, 16 oz jar of Pace salsa, fire    roasted tomato and corn
2 cups four cheese Mexican blend shredded cheese
1 can Campbell’s cream of chicken and mushroom (the combo in 1 can is alot less calories than buying 1 can of each
1 oz packet of Old El Paso fajita seasoning mix
Whatever various mexican spices you like (I used chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper)

Step 1
Season chicken with your various spices and fajita seasoning mux

Step 2
