Description

A great way to use up leftover rice.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CHICKEN:
  • 1 whole Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • ½  Poblano Chili Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Pasilla Ancho Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 dashes Salt
  • FOR THE RICE:
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ½ cups Chopped Red Onion
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • 2 cups Cooked White Rice
  • 2  Roma Tomatoes, Chopped
  • ½ teaspoons Chipotle Chili Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican Dried Oregano
  • ¼ cups Water
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt (or Salt To Taste)
  • ½ cups Shredded Cheese (For The Topping)
  • ½ cups Shredded Lettuce (For The Topping)

Preparation

For the chicken:

Cut the chicken in small pieces and add it into a medium size bowl. Cut the poblano pepper into about 2 inch size pieces and add it to the bowl. Add the pasilla ancho chili powder, olive oil, and salt. Stir together.

Heat a skillet on medium heat and add the chicken mixture. Stir together and continue stirring as it cooks. When the chicken is cooked (about 7 to 8 minutes) remove it from the skillet, put it into a small bowl and set aside. Keep the skillet on the stove (with the heat off) to use for the rice.

For the rice:

In the same skillet as the chicken was cooked in, add the olive oil and red onion. Stir and then add the garlic. Continue stirring as they cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the white rice, tomatoes, chipotle chili powder, cumin, dried oregano, water, and salt. Stir together. If the rice is looking a little dry, stir in a little bit more water. Add the chicken and cook for another 4 minutes or so until the chicken warms back up again.

Serve hot right out of the pan and top with shredded cheese and lettuce. A side of guacamole goes great with this dish too.

Sauteed kale instead of adding lettuce. Loved the flavor!
