Ro-Tel Chicken


This is an easy one—especially if you have cooked chicken or turkey in the freezer to use up!  I made use of the last bit of turkey from Thanksgiving this week when I made this recipe.

Ro-Tel Chicken (or Turkey!)

Heat in a large skillet which has a lid:  (or if you have 4 cups of chicken/turkey that is already cooked and shredded, as I did from the freezer, just warm it through, season it then add the other ingredients)

  • 1 T Vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Season the chicken, to taste, with
    • chili powder
    • salt
    • pepper

Add to the cooked chicken:

  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 can Ro-Tel  (I used the Great Value Brand of Ro-Tel)
  • 1 small can tomato sauce (8 oz)
  • 1 cup water—-don’t dirty another dish…just fill the 8 oz tomato sauce can with water and dump it in
  • 3 green onions, sliced


Reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes or until rice is tender (mine took about 30 minutes this time)

Stir chicken and rice.

Top with

  • shredded cheese (about 1 cup)

Cover and cook until the cheese melts.


This actually got four smiley faces from my family of four 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
