Quick salsa chicken and rice recipe for a hearty, filling meal in a hurry.


  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (preferably olive oil)
  • 1-pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 1 1/2-pounds chicken tenders
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic
  • 2 cups brown or white rice
  • 2, 10-ounce cans diced tomatoes with green chiles (may buy generic brand to save money!)
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 to 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 2 chopped green onions (use only green part)
  • Cilantro (garnish, optional)


  1. Heat oil in a large, deep frying pan or skillet. Add chicken and garlic, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink.
  2. Add rice, water, and chicken bouillon cubes, and tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes longer, allowing liquid to be absorbed and rice to become tender.
  3. Toss with chopped green onions and serve at once.
