  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook and stir chicken in hot oil until cooked through and juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the broth and salsa and bring to a boil; turn off the heat and stir in the instant rice. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the mixture. Cover the skillet and let sit until the rice is tender, about 5 minutes.

This was great. I was not sure if two cups of rice meant cooked or uncooked so I only put one bag of uncooked rice in and it needed more so I put two. Hopefully that will help anyone else that m...

Excellent! Used brown rice and sprinkled the chicken with some taco seasoning while it was cooking. Added some corn and topped it off with some sour cream, very good! Thank you!
