Oh man.  This one is GOOD.  It’s kind of like enchilada chicken on top of spoonbread, all with melted cheese on top.  Absolute perfection.

I got this recipe from The Cookbook Junkie, who got it from Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2009.  Just under 350 calories, and it’s 7 WW points, for those of you who are counting that. 🙂
