DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet, cook chicken in a small amount of oil. Season as desired. I used a lot of the following House Seasoning. When chicken is fully cooked, add water, taco seasoning, and can of Rotel. Bring to a boil and then add the rice. Stir the rice in until mixed, cover, and remove from heat. After all the water has been absorbed (abt 5 min.), give the chicken and rice mixture a stir and top with cheese. Put cover on again until cheese has melted.
  • *House Seasoning* - equal parts (can use less pepper) - kosher salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, dried parsley flakes.
