Preparation

Slice chicken breasts into bite sized pieces, put it into a dish and follow directions on the Mojito Lime Chicken marinade packet. Set dish in the fridge until you are ready for it, marinating at least 30 minutes.

Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. Scrape chicken and marinade into the hot skillet, and cook. I brown both sides, then let it simmer with the lid on for 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Make sure liquid doesn’t boil away. You can add a splash of water as necessary.

Combine 2 cups of rice and 4 cups of stock in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cover your saucepan. Simmer rice for 45 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed, or as instructed on rice package. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in fresh lime juice, cilantro and salt and pepper to taste. Spread rice into the bottom of a non-stick sprayed 9×13 pan. Preheat oven to 350 F.

Layer cooked chicken bites on top of rice, then spread the entire container of sour cream over that, followed by the jar of salsa and 3 cups of cheese.

Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.

To make the creamy ranch dressing, combine the regular ranch dressing with tomato paste, cilantro and lime juice. Stir well and drizzle on top of each individual plate of casserole.

Dig in! This is a fantastic, flavorful supper!
