Ingredients

    24 oz Tyson boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into small bite size pieces
    4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 Red bell pepper seeded and diced
    1 Med. Green Bell Pepper, seeded and diced
    4 tsp Garlic Minced GV in jar
    1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions, diced
    1 tsp Thyme, ground
    3 cup Great Value Instant Brown Rice
    2.5 cup Chicken Broth, Low Sodium, Great Value
    1 tsp Salt, table
    1 tsp Pepper, black
    2 cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray large casserole dish with olive oil spray and set aside.
Preheat 1 oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, carefully add diced chicken in a single layer. Let chicken caramelize by not moving around for a few minutes. Stir the chicken and allow to cook through.
Add the red and green bell peppers, garlic, onion and thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste and saute the vegetables for a couple of minutes.
Add in the rice. Toss with the chicken and vegetable mixture for a few minutes.
Slowly stir in chicken broth, scraping bits off the bottom of the pan.
Stir in the sour cream. Pour the mixture into prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the mixture. Bake for 30 minutes until cheese is browned and rice is tender.
