Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Southwest Chicken and Rice

This is a great meal for two - and it is easy, to boot.  You pick whatever color(s) of pepper you like.  I like to use the 90 second rice - either brown or a wild and brown mix.

1 Chicken Breast - big enough for two people
2 Bell Peppers cut in strips
1 Packet Taco OR Fajita Seasoning
1 Pouch Microwave Rice

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Pull off a large piece of parchment paper and fold in half.  Spray both halves with oil.  Place peppers on half the parchment, sprinkle with a little seasoning.  Place chicken on top of peppers, sprinkle with a little more seasoning (you should have about half remaining).  Fold parchment over and seal all sides.  Bake for 30 to 45 minutes until chicken is 165 degrees.

Remove from oven.  Let stand while you microwave the rice.  Put the rice in a large bowl and stir in remaining seasoning.   Cut up the chicken.  Stir the chicken, peppers and any liquid from the parchment into the rice.  Serve and Enjoy.
