Green Chile Chicken

I found this recipe on a great blog called "For the Love of Cooking" Lots of good stuff over there... It is such an easy recipe and oh so tasty. My whole family loves it and I like that it is healthy and full of flavor. Serve with rice and it makes a great meal. By the way, this isn't a recipe with heat so if you want things a little spicy add some spicy red pepper flakes or jalapenos to the cheese.

Green Chile Chicken

4 chicken breasts
2 eggs
Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
1-2 7 oz. cans whole mild green chiles halved
1 2.25 oz. can of sliced black olives
1/2 cup of cheddar, shredded
1/4 cup of monterey jack or cotjia cheese, shredded
1-2 tbsp of mayonnaise

Mix eggs & spices into a bowl. Trim chicken of any fat & slice each breast into 2 chunks. Dip chicken into egg mixture & add to a hot pan sprayed with cooking spray (or olive oil). Cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and place in a baking dish. Cover each chunk of chicken with a green chile half. Mix cheese and mayonnaise in bowl. Sprinkle on top of chicken and green chiles. Top with black olives. Cook for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
