  • 1 lb (454 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 2 cups (500 mL) chopped red pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder
  • 1 can CAMPBELL’S® Condensed Cream of Chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) water
  • 1 cup (250 mL) PACE® Chunky Mild Salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) dry instant white rice
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 each green onion, finely chopped


  1. Season the chicken as desired. Heat the oil in a large deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until browned. 
  2. Add the peppers, garlic and chili powder. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until starting to soften.
  3. Stir in the soup, water and salsa; heat to a boil. Stir in the rice. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with the cheese. Cover and remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes or until the rice is tender, the liquid is absorbed and the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with the green onions.

Recipe tips

  • Serve with chopped fresh cilantro and lime wedges if desired. 
  • To save time, cut your peppers and garlic while the chicken is cooking.

    Great weeknight dinner !

    Easy to make and great leftovers.... if there is any left ! We used mixed peppers and served with sour cream and sliced avocado. It was a huge hit !

    I made this tonight for supper - eating it now. It is so yummy. A nice little spice and the cheesiness is awesome. Definitely adding to my recipe box to make another time for sure!

    Love how easy this comes together with one pan to clean!

    Great tasting recipe. It is a bit like a creamy risotto texture, I added an extra half cup of the rice because it looked like there was too much liquid. Skipped the cheese.

    Tasty Dish, Super Easy

    I rarely review recipes but I really enjoyed this dish and even my picky husband did too. To the comment above about milk, I didn't include any and it didn't seem to miss it.
