Chicken and Rice Mexican Style

Recipe by Sherries1970

I'm sure somewhere along the way someone else created this recipe. I was bored with plain chicken, etc so I decided to "spice it up" and add some mexican flair to it.

This was really good. I would have given it 5 stars, but the recipe doesn't say what kind of rice (minute, long grain, etc.) to use. I used long grain brown rice since that I what I had in the house and had to increase the cooking time by about 15-20 minutes. Other than that, it was great. I will make it again.
