Monterey Chicken and Potatoes

Monterey Chicken and Potatoes

This is one of those throw everything together, toss it in the oven, and voila! our comes a super easy dish that also tastes great!
Try it today!

You will need:
 1 1/2lbs red potatoes, diced
3 T butter, melted
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 T lime juice
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
1/4 cup cilantro, diced
3 T salsa (any kind will do)

To make:
Preheat oven to 425. Melt butter in a 9x13 pan in the oven (I usually do this while I'm dicing the potatoes). Once the butter is melted, add the potatoes and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes.

Once that's done, place the chicken in the center of the pan. Brush the chicken with remaining butter and lime juice. Bake for 20-30 minutes until chicken is no longer pink and potatoes are tender. Brush more lime juice on the chicken (optional, but I do it just for added flavor). Combine cheese, cilantro, and salsa and sprinkle mixture over the potatoes and chicken. Bake approximately 4 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
