Really good. I boiled then shredded the chicken, also added Chicken Stock to give it flavor which also kept it moist. Didn't add the Picante Sauce, instead I used sour cream, Philadelphia Lemon and Herb Cooking Cream. I served with mexican rice and a bed of lettuce, really good super easy and next time I will fry it instead of using the oven, just to see how it turns out.
