1 pound Crispy Chicken Strips
1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder, optional
2 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 Cubanelle peppers, chopped
3 clove garlic, finely minced
1 kosher salt, to taste
1-1/2 cup rice, uncooked
14-1/2 ounce low sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup pimento-stuffed olives, sliced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
- Prepare Crispy Strips according to package directions. Sprinkle with chili powder prior to cooking if desired.
- While chicken is cooking, heat oil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, peppers, garlic and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add uncooked rice and stir until toasted, about 2 minutes. Add the broth and water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer just until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
- Stir the olives and cilantro into the rice and divide among plates. Cut the chicken into slices and serve on top of rice.
