Healthier version of the Latin dish.
Top Review by IngridH
If you like your mexican food mild, you will love this dish. Its a great way to get brown rice (rather than white) into your diet without feeling like you are using a substitute. I needed to cook longer than the 45 minutes listed, as my rice was still a bit crunchy. I substituted red pepper for green, but otherwise made as listed. Next time I would increase the chili powder, cumin, and cayenne, as I like my mexican food a tad spicier. Made for PAC Fall '08.
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch strips
- 1 medium onion (quartered)
- 2 green peppers (chopped)

- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 3⁄4 cup long grain brown rice
- 1 dash cayenne pepper
- 1 cup green peas (fresh or frozen)
- 1 teaspoon sazon goya or 1 teaspoon any other seasoning salt
