    My family loves this! We have it almost once a week! I use the canned rotel tomatoes with green chili and sharp cheddar and it’s a hit! I serve with rice since the pan always has tons of tomato yummy bits! Kids gave it a big thumbs up (middle school and up lol)

    I wasn’t sure how this would taste with the BBQ sauce, but it was really quite delicious.

    Pretty good! Subbed in a can of Rotel for the tomatoes & green chilis because I hate fire roasted tomatoes. I halved & brushed the BBQ sauce lightly over the chicken but I'll definitely use the full 1/4 cup the recipe calls for the next time I make this. Also, I added sliced mushrooms & diced zucchini under the chicken to make this a whole meal without the need for additional side dishes. Husband loved it and the kids "meh"ed it 🙄 lol
    Awesome, and delicious.

    Super easy to make. No real prep, just throw everything in a casserole dish and in about an hour you have a great main.

    Excellent I add bacon strips on top of the chicken and put cheese on top.
    We enjoyed the flavors. I think next time I will make it in the crock pot and then shred the chicken and put it in taco shells.

    My family really enjoyed it. The only change I made was to leave out the green onions for the kids.

    Easy to make, had to drain the tomato juice so it wasn’t soggy. Smells delish.

    Delicious! I tweaked it a bit with what i had lying around. i had a can of combined fire roasted tomatoes and green chilies (so less green chilies than the recipie suggested) and cheddar cheese instead of the suggested cheese. Still came out amazing. i cant wait to make it according to recipe next time. Also, I love spicy so im going to try some chopped fresh jalepeno with the tomatoes next time. Highly recommended!

    Delicious! I thought the barbecue sauce would be strange but it’s a subtle taste and it goes well! Makes great leftovers too!
