    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch baking dish with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Melt butter in 12-inch skillet over medium heat until sizzling. Add chicken; cook 15-20 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F and juices run clear when pierced with fork. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm. Wipe out skillet.

  3. STEP 3

I did not have Express Squares, so I used a little butter and sauteed garlic, then added chicken to the pan. I used flour tortillas, and these turned out more like burritos, but it was tasty! It reminded my family of our neighborhood Mexican restaurant.
