This recipe is from the Great American Home Baking series and is fairly quick, very easy and quite tasty. I actually never use the onion or olives, but I'll give the full recipe.

This was indeed tasty...I cut my chicken mixture up and wrapped it in my tortilla with some of the rice in it too..I felt that it was missing sour cream...DH ate his like he does fajitas...taking a bite of each item...I think the main missing component was...heat...I could see adding some slivered jalapenos...that would kick it up a notch...overall a great dish...Made for Spring 2014 PAC...=)
