Pollo Con Queso


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until they become translucent.
  3. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until they are browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, diced green chilies, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
  5. Pour the tomato mixture over the chicken breasts in the skillet, making sure they are well coated. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer the chicken and sauce to a baking dish. Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the chicken.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.
  9. Serve the Pollo Con Queso with rice, tortillas, or your preferred side dishes.
