    1 C. Brown Rice (2 C. cooked)
    1 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 Lg. Onion
    1 Lg. Green Bell Pepper
    1 Lb. Boneless, skinless, Chicken Breast

Directions

Prepare rice according to package directions (1 C. dry), but adding 1/2 tsp. each of the seasonings to water.


When rice is about 1/2 done (about 20 minutes), Chop onion and pepper.


Heat oil on Medium high heat in 8 quart stock pot. Add onion and pepper. Cook until tender, stirring occasionally.


Cut Chicken into small bite sized pieces. Add to pot with onion and pepper. Add remaining seasoning. Cook until chicken is fully cooked. About 10-15 minutes


Add rice, tomatoes (liquid included), and beans (drained). Cook on Medium Low heat, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes, or until liquid from tomatoes is absorbed.


Meanwhile, peel and cut shrimp into bite sized pieces. Add to the pot and cook until shrimp is pink, about 10 minutes.

Makes 11-12 1-C. servings

**A hot pepper or two to the onion and pepper, or some red pepper flakes to the seasoning to spice it up a little would make a great addition!
