Tex Mex Chicken N Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by sassafrasnanc

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.
