Fiesta Chicken * Ro-Tel

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by NurseJaney

This is a quick and spicy meal which can easily be served to guests. Even the small ones in the family enjoy the "more than usual" heat. To calm it some, you can use i can of standard Ro*Tel. Sour cream, shredded cheddar, and/or cilantro toppings are optional

Yummmm! A definite keeper of a recipe! I used boneless skinless thighs in place of the chicken breasts in this recipe because of the cost factor. The yellow rice was a new ingredient for us...and one we will certainly have more often! The only change I will make to the recipe next time is to double the olives which is a request my kids made. We topped the dish with some fresh chopped cilantro, sour cream and a little grated cheddar cheese. Thanks so much for sharing this tasty and simple recipe. Made and reviewed for the 62nd AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.
