I went back and forth several times on whether or not I was going to post this. It was an invention designed after realizing that I had some thawed chicken in the fridge, no plan, and no ambition! There's really nothing new or exciting about it, but it was a definite hit and was gobbled down by every player in the family. The biggest reason I wanted to post though it because the rice, which was also a mix of ingredients that I basically closed my eyes and threw together, turned out DELICIOUS. I love it when that happens!
For the chicken pizzas, top a flour or corn tortilla with refried, or smashed black beans, chicken that has been sauteed in favorite Mexican flavors, sliced olives and mozzarella cheese. Bake at 375 until crispy and brown. Top with rice, sour cream, cilantro, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, guacamole, or whatever your wee fancy heart desires.
1 cup white rice
1 1/2 cup water
1 medium sized can diced tomatoes
1 small can green chiles
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for twenty minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is fluffy.
