Chicken with Pumpkin Seeds

This dish is quick and easily prepared which makes it great after a long day at work. Add a squeeze of lime before serving to enhance the flavour.
  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves, skinned and trimmed of fat
  • 1/3 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 can diced green chiles
  • 1/2 cup shredded jack cheese
  • lemon or lime wedges

Rinse the chicken and pat dry; then place skinned side up in a baking pan. In a small bowl, mix the pumpkin seeds, chiles, and cheese and pat evenly on the chicken.

Bake at 450 until the meat near the bone is no longer pink, about 20 - 25 minutes. Serve with lemon or lime wedges.
