Meijer bargain recipe of the week- Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Bargain Meal of the Week

I love recipes that take 30 minutes or less. That's just about the amount of time I have to prepare dinner without someone being attached to my leg or throwing their little body on the floor in a heap of hunger. :) This recipe seems so simple that I had to try it out... happy eating!
