Easy Cheesy Chili Chicken

This is another excellent recipe that we found on Linda’s Low Carb Recipes. It’s quite hot in flavour, but the cheese keeps it from being too much (you can also serve it with sour cream if you want to). It’s simple to make and it is definitely one of our favourites. It also looks really good – like something you might be served in a restaurant.
