Cilantro Chicken

2 T lime juice
2 T veg. oil
1 T honey
4 chicken breasts
1 cup finely crushed tortilla chips
16 oz thick-n-chunky salsa
1 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
2 T minced fresh cilantro
Sour cream for serving

Combine lime juice, oil and honey. Dip chicken breast in mixture and then coat with crushed tortilla chips. Place in an ungreased baking dish and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until juices run clear. Combine salsa and cilantro and pour over chicken. Top with cheese and cook for 20 minutes or until cheese starts to bubble.

I got this from a friends blog too and Eric really liked it. We added extra cilantro after it was done because he loves cilantro and thought it needed a bit more. Next time we will add more initially. I sliced the breasts in half to cut down on cooking time. Enjoy!

Fruit Pizza

1 tube sugar cookie dough
1 cup whipped topping
12 oz. cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 T lemon juice
fruit of your choice

Roll out cookie dough onto baking sheet in the shape of a circle, like a pizza, then bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Set aside and let cool completely. Mix together whipped topping, cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice with hand mixer or kitchen aid to get smooth. Once the cookie dough has cooled spread mixture on with spatula and then top with favorite fruits and enjoy!

The girls had so much fun making this and we thought it was really good too. I used low fat cream cheese and you couldn't tell the difference. We used strawberries, bananas, kiwi and raspberries. Any fruit will be delicious.

Swiss Cheese Chicken

Chicken Tenders (enough to cover bottom of Pyrex)
Swiss Cheese Slices
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
2 cups Season Chicken Stuffing Mix
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water

Arrange chicken in baking dish and cover with Swiss cheese. Stir soup and water together and pour over chicken and cheese. Put dry stuffing over soup and drizzle with butter. Bake at 350 for roughly 45 minutes.

I got this recipe from a friends blog and we liked it. Really easy. I used a little less butter and it was still good. This recipe made a little more than we needed for two adults and two toddlers so adjust to your family size. Hope you like it!
