    Chicken and rice in a zippy sauce. A complete meal ready in no time. We love this with guacamole, sour cream and fresh tortillas! A bed of shredded lettuce adds to the complete meal.

      I prepared a full recipe but with half the chicken for the two of us. The chicken breasts were quite large, so there was still enough meat for 4 people, but enough of the rice part for more like three. It was a good dish. I added extra garlic, but I think you could probably add some more spices and/or chiles to it as well.

      Easy to make. Tastes great! I too wasn't sure re: the cooking of the chicken, but it was tender and cooked thoroughly! Peeps are going to love this!

      This recipe sounded good, but I wasn't real sure how it would turn out. No worries...this dish is wonderful! I scaled this recipe in half and followed the directions exactly (with the exception of using a 4 cheese Mexican blend instead of the cheddar cheese). It was very easy to throw together and had just the right amount of heat. Made for July, 2008 Bevy Tag.
