Using a store-bought rotisserie chicken for this spicy Mexican Chicken Bake will help save time. The chicken filling is sandwiched between two corn tortillas, topped with tomatoes, cilantro and reduced fat cheese, and baked until the cheese is melted. Serve it for lunch with a green salad or for dinner with rice and beans.
