Ro-Tel Chicken

Standard

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

Cover

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.

Enjoy!

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