From the Test Kitchen

Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. In this dish, our chicken breasts are generously covered by a blanket of melty monterey jack cheese mixed with spicy pickled jalapeño, creamy mayo, and bold Mexican spices. We're using some of the same spices to coat our side of roasted potatoes—perfectly balanced by a sprinkle of cotija and fresh lime juice.
