Ingredients

  • 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

Cooking Instructions

  • 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.
