1/3 c Lime Juice
2 T Green Chilies,Chopped
1/4 t Garlic Powder
----- Chicken ========================

In 9" square baking pan stir together all marinade ingredients. Add chicken breasts; marinate, turning once, in refrigerator at least 45 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade; drain. Grill or saute chicken 7 minutes; turn. Continue cooking until done, about 6 to 8 minutes. Top each chicken breast with a slice of cheese. Continue cooking until cheese begins to melt.
