This was a hit at my daughter's 1 year birthday party..she even loved it! It's such a simple and quick recipe. We served it with taco shells, both soft and hard. Thanks for posting.

I looked at lots of chicken salsa recipes before deciding on this one. I changed a few things. I used a 15 oz jar of medium Pace's picante sauce and chicken tenders. I browned the chicken before adding the salsa, cheese and olives. I added 1 cup of uncooked rice and 1/2 cup water and let everything simmer for about 35 min. It tasted great like that but the sauce was creamier and smoother when I added the sour cream. Great one pan meal. I'll be making this again.
