    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large freezer bag combine the chicken, olive oil and paprika. Seal the bag and massage chicken to coat well with paprika. Squeeze out as much as you can and seal well.
    2. 2
      In a quart size freezer bag add the onions, peppers and garlic. Seal the bag.
    3. 3
      In a quart size freezer bag add the tomatoes and broth.
    4. 4
      I choose to measure the rice and cheese at this point and place in freezer bags (separately) and freeze.
    5. 5
      Place all of the sealed baggies into a large freezer bag with recipe number or print and tuck inside. Seal the bag. Lay flat in the freezer.
    6. 6
      To cook; thaw.
    7. 7
      Heat oil in a skillet.
    8. 8
      Add chicken and saute until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
    9. 9
      Stir in onions, peppers and garlic adding a little more oil if needed. Cook until tender being careful not to burn the garlic!
    10. 10

      Here is a happy OAMC story. I made this kit last Sunday. Friday, I had to leave town for two nights. I told my 18 year old son... who hates peppers and onions in anything... that he should pick a frozen meal out of the freezer so that he can cook it on Saturday. He picked this one. I did not mention the peppers and onions. I came home today and his meal was a big hit! He left me one serving so that I could try it. He told his father that usually he wouldn't eat peppers and onions, but since he cooked it, he was willing to try. They both loved it. So thanks! My 18 yr old now eats peppers and onions. Also, I did not freeze the tomatoes/broth/rice/cheese for freezer space reasons. But I set these items aside knowing they were for this recipe. I always have that stuff on hand anyway.
