Ok, this is a recipe I've been meaning to share for the longest time. It's one of Heath's favorites, which is great since it's so simple. There aren't really any set measurements with this recipe...it's more to personal taste.
Me? I like a lot of everything on my chicken, as does Heath. I'm not sure it's possible to have too much BBQ sauce and cheese on a piece of chicken :)
If you google 'Monterrey Chicken', you'll get many different variations of this recipe. I'm not giving any one site a credit source since this is something I've been making for a couple years, and the recipe below is altered to my own family's taste.
If the recipe below is a little too basic for you, then google it...you'll find all kinds of different versions of this!
Ok guys, that's it for me. Jesse should be coming out soon (we're at the dentist), and he's gonna want to go get some breakfast. Our appointment was so early we didn't get a chance to eat, so we are hungry!!
Have a great day!
