Xbee communication with two arduino board using serial monitor

Hi guys, I recently bought two XBee 1mw wire antenna series 1 and I connect one two a Xbee sparkfun shield while the other one is connected to a breadboard. I was wondering is it possible for both XBee to communicate with each other on the serial monitor that is in arduino IDE while not using the terminal monitor in XCTU. I hope you guys can help. Thanks

That is really a question that needs to be asked on your Arduino web site.
