    * 1 1/3 cups uncooked brown rice
    * 2 2/3 cups water
    * 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    * 1 1/2 cups shredded 2% Monterey Jack cheese
    * 1/1/2 cups shredded 2% Cheddar cheese

    * 1 (10.75 ounce) can lowfat condensed cream of mushroom soup
    * 1 onion, chopped
    * 1 1/2 cups mild salsa


1. Place rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, place chicken breast halves into a large saucepan, and fill the pan with water. Bring to a boil, and cook for 20 minutes, or until done. Remove chicken from water. When cool enough to handle, cut meat into bite-size pieces.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
4. In a medium bowl, combine Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses. In a separate bowl, mix together cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, onion, and salsa. Layer 1/2 of the rice, 1/2 of the chicken, 1/2 of the soup and salsa mixture, and 1/2 of the cheese mixture in prepared dish. Repeat layers, ending with cheese.
5. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes, or until bubbly.
