This Santa Fe chicken dish is a favorite in our house (we eat it pretty much weekly). It has lots of flavor and is delicious piled high with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips.
We like to use a rotisserie chicken to make this super easy. You can also make this in a slow cooker using raw chicken breasts (though we like the flavor better on the stovetop).

- 1/2 cup diced onion
