Found this recipe in a magazine and it looked wonderful so I decided to try it and it's absolutely great.


  1. In large skillet, cook chicken in hot oil until brown. Add onion and garlic, saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add mushrooms and ROTEL tomatoes; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until meat is done.
  3. Sprinkle with cheese. Replace cover and heat until cheese melts.
  4. Serve over rice.

Very easy to make, I used spinach instead of mushrooms, sprinkled about 1/2 tsp of Cumin over cooked chicken, added a can of black beans with the rotel and served over brown rice, it was a hit for the whole family and that's tough to do with 8 and 14 year old boys + hubby! It's definitely going into my weekly rotation!!

This was really easy to make and so good! I paired it with Rice a Roni chicken garlic rice and spinach. This made a great, filling meal that was less than 400 calories.

This recipe was very good. I ended up cutting the chicken into large chunks and adding 1 1/2 tablespoons of tomato sauce. It made for a thicker sauce over the rice, and very tasty.
