Hello! I am sharing a recipe from Knorr today. It is on the back of their Mexican Rice Fiesta Sides bag. It sounded good to me, so I thought I would try it. I changed it up a bit.
I chose to add a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes (not drained), and I added cumin as well as the chili powder it calls for in the recipe. I served refried beans as a side. I really think you could add corn and/or drained and rinsed black beans to this as well.
Get yourself a lime from the produce department. It will taste better than the stuff in those plastic lime containers. 🙂
We liked this a lot. It was easy, and some nights we just need a quick and easy meal.
I should have added some Mrs. Cubbison’s Southwest Flavor Tortilla strips on top. We love them on salads! You can find them near the salad dressing and croutons in the grocery store. They are SO yummy. I thank my friend Kim for introducing them into our lives! 🙂
Fiesta Lime Chicken & Rice
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (I cubed it up before cooking.)
3/4 teaspoon chili powder (I also added 1 teaspoon cumin.)
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1 package Knorr Fiesta Sides Mexican Rice prepared according to package directions
Your favorite taco toppings – shredded cheese, chopped tomato, chopped onion, crumbled tortilla chips
Sprinkle chicken with chili powder (and cumin if using). Heat 1 Tablespoon oil in 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, turning once, until cooked thoroughly, about 6 minutes. Stir in lime juice. At this point I added the can of diced tomatoes (not drained) and heated until warm.
Spoon prepared rice onto serving platter, then top with chicken and any chicken drippings. (I mixed it all up!)
Top with your favorite taco toppings.
