This recipe is from A Texas Hill Country Cookbook. It's so much more flavorful than plain old chicken and rice and gets a little crispy on top which I love. I use skinless boneless chicken breasts.

I agree with Boca Pat, this is very easy to put together and then sit back and relax while it cooks. I too added jalapeno peppers instead of the bell pepper and diced fire roasted red bell peppers for pimentos. The dish was ready in 1 hour and the chicken was moist and tender. An attractive dish to serve. Thanks!
