Florida Poultry Recipe

Fiesta Chicken

3  tablespoons all-purpose flour
1  1.4-ounce package fajita seasoning, divided
4 skinned and boned chicken breasts, cubed
3  tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1  teaspoon garlic, minced
1  15-1/4-ounce can whole-kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained
1  15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1  14-1/2-ounce can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
1  4.5-ounce can green chiles, chopped
3  cups water (or chicken stock)
1  cup instant brown rice, uncooked
1  2-1/4-ounce can ripe olives, sliced (optional)
1  10-3/4-ounce can Cheddar Cheese soup (or 1 15-ounce can mild nacho cheese sauce)
3  tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1  tablespoon lime juice
Combine flour and 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning in a zip-top freezer bag; add chicken. Seal zip bag and shake to coat chicken. Cook chicken in hot oil in a large Dutch oven over high heat, stirring often, 4 minutes or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-high; add onion and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in remaining fajita seasoning, corn, black beans, stewed tomatoes, chiles, water, brown rice, and, if desired, olives. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 5 minutes. Remove lid, and stir in cheese soup, chopped cilantro and lime juice. Garnish, with chopped fresh cilantro if desired. Delicious served with breadsticks.
