Spanish Chicken with Rice

Introduction

You can make this delishious spanish style food by using your slow cooker- with the chicken breasts, or by using a frying pan or pot i you'd like to use ground chicken. Its a simple simple dish- with a LOT of great flavour.

Ingredients

    4 servings of brown rice

    4 cups of Diced Tomatos (1 large can)
    4-6 tablespoons of chopped Cilantro (depending on the person- i LOVE cilantro, so I tend to go overboard and never regret it)
    1-2 cups of sliced Mushrooms
    half a Bell Pepper, chopped
    .5 cup of finely chopped Onion
    3 Chicken Breasts

Directions

If using a slow cooker- Id recommend to first brown the chicken breast using a fat-free spray, then placing the chicken into the slowcooker and tossing these ingredients in on top. Cooking on low for about 10 hours, adding salt and pepper to taste. Before serving, I'd tear apart the chicken with a fork or two, or slice into nice big chuncks

Its the easiest meal you could make with so much packed in flavour- cilantro is an incredible ingredient, and I'd recommend purchasing only fresh ingredients, as the taste is unbeatable.

If you'd like to make this using ground chicken, its also tasty (this is more pratical if you're trying to coax children into eating it, seeing as its also delish wrapped up in a tortilla with some cheese ontop).
Dont limit yourself to using the slowcooker- esspecially if you dont have the time to do this in the morning- you can also just toss it together in a pot or frying pan, letting it simmer for as long as possible and again, adding salt and pepper to taste.

Hope anyone who tries this loves it as much as we do at my home-

  • Not bad at all....I mixed the rice in with the complete mixture.
    Turned out OK, but I wouldn't do it again.

  • This was delicious! I added a cup of frozen peas and another cup of mushrooms (i love mushrooms) and some extra spices, and used cereal pilaf instead of rice. I have no slow cooker, so i just let everything simmer for a couple of hours in a large skillet. the result was wonderful. :) - 9/28/09
