I played around with this one, which was originally from Pillsbury. My family likes it, and so do I.

This was a very tasty, one pot meal that was perfect for a weeknight dinner. The combination of ingredients worked well together and everyone enjoyed it. Very colorful too, from all the bell peppers.

This was good and really easy to whip up. Didn't have bell peppers on and. Tossed in half a bag of frozen corn instead of the peppers. Also tossed in a can of diced tomatoes, and skipped the cheese for a healthier dinner. This was good and worked really well for everyone including kids.

The kids loved it. It was easy and a great use of leftover chicken. I used converted rice, it keeps its texture better than white rice in dishes like this.
