This is quick and easy. I adapted this from a Taste of Home Recipe. You can add green chillies or a dash of hot sauce, to spice it up a bit. I use boneless chicken breast, Also, sometimes cut them into chicken strips Yes you can cut back on the onion to your taste.


  1. In large skillet (electric skillet works great) saute` onion in butter till tender.
  2. Add broth and salsa; bring to boil.
  3. Stir in rice and garlic powder.
  4. Place chicken over rice and cover.
  5. Simmer on med to low heat for ten min turn chicken.
  6. Cook additional ten minutes or until juices in chicken run clear.
  7. Sprinkle with cheese.
  8. Cover and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  9. NOTE: You may microwave chicken for ten min before placing on top sauce.

Wow, was this a nice find! Not only was this a quick and easy meal to prepare, but it was so delicious! Looking at another review, I scaled back to a medium onion. Although when sauted enough it shouldn't make a difference. The salsa made for a wonderful mexican tasting rice and the chicken was moist and tender. I had about a 1/2 cup of mexican cheese and followed it up with 1/4 of sharp cheddar. I think the cheddar and monteray would be the better combo for this. Enjoy!

I thought this was a nice, tasty dish. The cheddar cheese was just the right amount. Easy to prepare and inexepensive. My only complaint was that 1 large onion was way too much. Next time, I will cut that by 75%. A great one skillet meal.
