Mexican Chicken Bake - It Is a Keeper

I like to serve it over rice or sometimes, I slice the chicken and serve it in tortillas for Taco Tuesday.  You can serve it with your favorite sides, like black beans, Mexican rice or shred the chicken and use it on tostadas.

I use my homemade taco seasoning in this recipe, but you could easily purchase it at your local grocery store.
