1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/3 cup all purpose flour

Prepare fajita mix according to package directions; add chicken and marinate as directed. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil until juices run clear; set aside.

In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour until blended. Gradually stir in broth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Add the tomatoes, process cheese and 1 cup monteray jack; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Stir in cream and reserved chicken heat through (do not boil).
