Salsa Chicken Rice Skillet is a complete meal made with organic ingredients, in just one pan and in less than 30 minutes!
Last month we moved to a new house, same town, just a little bit bigger of a house in a quite neighborhood. One of my favorite things is that we are now less than 5 minutes away from a Walmart, so if I need anything, it’s just a quick trip down the road.
Salsa Chicken Rice Skillet recipe:
For the Chicken:
- 1 lb boneless skinless organic chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp Great Value Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
- 1/2 tsp Great Value Organic Garlic Powder
- 1/2 tsp Great Value Organic Chili Powder
- 1/4 tsp Great Value Organic Cumin
- Salt and Pepper to taste
For the Salsa Rice:
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 1/2 cups Great Value Organic Long Grain and Wild Rice Blend
- 1 tsp Great Value Organic Garlic Salt
- 1 tsp Great Value Organic Cumin
- 1 organic lime, juice of
- 1 3/4 cup Great Value Organic low sodium Chicken Broth
- 1 cup Great Value Organic Mild Salsa, plus extra for serving
- 15 oz Great Value Organic Pinto Beans, drained
- 1 1/2 cups Colby Jack Cheese, shredded
- 1 organic avocado, sliced
- 2 tbsp organic green onions, diced
- Season both sides of the chicken breasts with garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add 1 tbsp of the Great Value Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Sear the chicken for 3 minutes per side, until golden brown (the chicken wont be cooked through at this point). Remove from the skillet and set aside.
- To the skillet add 1 tbsp butter and the remaining tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add in the Long Grain and Wild Rice blend and stir, toasting the rice slightly. Add in the garlic salt, lime juice, chicken broth, salsa, and drained pinto beans. Bring the mixture to a boil, then nestle the chicken breasts back on top of the rice mixture. Reduce heat to a simmer then cover and let cook for 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
- Remove the lid and cover the chicken breasts with the shredded cheese. Place the lid back on and let the cheese melt. Top with the sliced avocado, extra salsa and diced green onions. Enjoy!
