Southwest Chicken Skillet
A recipe from www.ro-tel.com. Legend has it this recipe was developed by chuck wagon chefs.
"This was a great recipe. I started with your idea. We like things pretty spicy around here, so I added a few drops of Tabasco® Sauce, 2 T. of Chili Powder, 2 T Cumin, and a few shakes of Lawry's® Seasoning Salt, pepper, and Garlic Powder. I also added a lot more diced tomatoes, and a package of frozen corn. Next time I am going to add black olives and muchrooms at the kids' request. It was so good that it made the skiing list. That means that this is a meal the kids want to take along to eat at the ski hill each week. Huge honor, I'll have you know!"- fudge4u

Southwest Chicken Skillet Preparation
Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, or until no longer pink. Stir in rice, tomatoes, water, and all but 2 tablespoons of the onion. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir chicken and rice. Top with cheese and reserved 2 tablespoons of green onion. Cover and cook 5 minutes more or until cheese melts. Garnish with sour cream, if desired.
For variety, try blending 1 cup of frozen peas in step 3 just before topping with cheese. Heat through and serve.
