Lunch in 5 Minutes or Less!

When looking at this cheesy grilled chicken, no one would ever guess it can be on the table in less than 5 minutes. No kidding. Here's how:

Even Faster
Pepper Jack's Chicken

1. Remove a serving of Chicken Cubes from the freezer. (These are cut into strips, but cubes work just as well)
2. Heat them in the microwave oven for 2-3 minutes.
3. While that is cooking, stir together 1/2 cup shredded Pepper Jack Cheese and 1/8 cup cream.
4. Microwave the cheese mixture for one minute or until cheese melts. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve.

You might like this in a low carb tortilla, but it goes well with a salad on the side too. So much better than fast food. By the way, this is the same sauce that is matched with freshly grilled chicken in the E.Z.Fix section of the cookbook.

That sounds yummy!! I love cheese and chicken! I would use pepper jack or something spicy like that!

Silly question, but what is a chicken cube? Is it pre-cooked chicken, or something like raw) chicken tenders, but in cube shape? This sounds tasty, but I'm not sure what type/brand chicken:) Thanks!

Yes. Frozen. Tyson has some. Cubes or strips.

Okay, thanks! I've never noticed them before. I tried the sauce today on a baked chicken breast, and it was yummy:) Cubes would be infinitely faster, which would be great for in a hurry.
