Zesty Skillet Chicken Altered By MEP

Obviously got this off a can of Del Monte tomatoes, but I fiddled around with it a bit. It's a great weekday meal to throw together, especially if you have everything cut up ahead of time. I make this pretty often.(I also like a little Frank's Hot Sauce on my plate) You can also throw in a can of black beans or whatever. Be creative!

Easy to prepare and good tasting. I wish I had the cilantro it called for because I know that would have made it even better. I think I'll buy some dried cilantro so I can have it on hand. Thanks for sharing.

I didn't have a can of green chilies, but still enjoyed this recipe. As other reviews, I did add l/2 can of drained black beans. I cooked the rice in chicken broth spiked w/chili powder and a bit of chunky salsa to taste and served it on the side, along with warmed flour tortillas, in case we'd want to stuff the filling as a burrito. Made in memory of MEP, who will be missed by so many of us.

Quick, easy and filling weeknight meal. I had the chicken already baked, so added it to the cooked onion and garlic mixture. With fire-roasted tomatoes, 1/2 can black beans and fat free cheddar served over brown rice, we had a very nice WW Core meal. Thanks MEP! Made for Chef Zaar Alphabet Soup tag game.
