{Dinner} Mexican Chicken

I knew it was going to happen one of these days. I was going to try a recipe and I was not going to be a fan. It happened. Hubby and I did not like it.

It was strange because it wasn't horrible but it just wasn't something I would try again. Maybe it needed less than what the recipe called for but I am not curious enough to try again. Also, because we weren't fans of the recipe, I won't be linking the recipe back to the person I stole it from. Nice of me, huh?

If you are curious, here's the recipe.

You will need:

4 Chicken Breast
1 lb of Velvetta Cheese
2 Cans of Cream of Chicken
1 Can of Rotel {or a can of diced tomatoes & green chiles}

** Take the 1 lb of velveeta cheese, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and 1 can of rotel and heat it through on the stove.

When it is melted it will look like this:

While the mixture is melting , bake or boil your chicken breasts. I baked our chicken for about 25 minutes. When I took it out of the oven, I shredded the chicken with a fork.

I seasoned the chicken with black pepper, herbed poultry, herbs provence and seasoned salt.

After you mix the chicken with the cheese mixture, pour it into a 9X13 dish and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

When there is 10 minutes left to bake, crunch up some tortilla chips and throw on top and continue to bake.

While it is baking prepare egg noodles and serve on top.

Sounds delicious right?

Not so much.


  1. It seems like it would be good. I am curious to know what was bad about it. But I guess it doesn't matter. If it didn't agree with your palette then forget it.

  2. Hey, it happens. It looks good though. It seems kind of like chicken macaroni.

  3. That's exactly how you make queso in Texas- velveeta and rotel (delish!!) However, I wonder if the tortilla chips got soggy since they were on top? Can't win 'em all I guess.

    As an aside, melt the Velveeta and Rotel together and then use as a dip with plain tortilla chips- omg, it's to die for!

  4. Velveeta Cheese and cream of anything (chicken, celery, etc.) do not mix, LOL!!

  5. I love that you took the time to supply us with a not-so-delcious recipe. LOL! You are too funny, Faith!

    Guess I won't be making this one. ;)

  6. It does look like it should be yummy. Wonder what went wrong... I am so tempted to try it but all my cooking stuff is packed!

  7. It looks SO SO good though!! Are you sure it was bad?? Haha!!

  8. It looks good, sorry it wasn't wha you thought it would be. Isn't that annoying when you have your mouth set for something and it turns out bad?

  9. Oh Faith, it sounds and looks soooo good! What did it taste like? I wonder what changes you can make for it to taste good?!? lol

  10. given your natural hair journey i stumbled across this site with women in interracial relationships (like you) who are also going the natural hair route!

  11. haha thanks for sharing! for my taste, this recipe has too much velveta and the egg noodles make no sense...

  12. At least you made it well...just perhaps the ingredients didn't work well together! Thanks for the warning!

  13. Unfortunately this happens every now and again. Honestly though, I don't cook or use Velveeta cheese. There's something weird about being able to purchase in on a store shelf..unrefrigerated. Of course I make the exception when we make Queso dip for the superbowl... but that's it. lol. I hope you find another Mexican dish that knocks your socks off!


I love comments ... but only if you're fabulous!
