Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 2
Cut the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (1 lb) into 1/2 to 1-inch strips.
Step 3
In a bowl, toss the chicken and half the Taco Seasoning (1/2 packet) seasoning until combined.
Step 4
In a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, add Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) . Once hot, add the chicken and sear until no longer pink, then transfer to a plate and set aside.
Step 5
Add Yellow Onion (1) and Green Bell Pepper (1) to the same pan with the remaining Taco Seasoning (1/2 packet) . Cook until the veggies are softened, 4-5 more minutes.
Step 6
Remove from heat. Add the White Rice (3 cups) and Chunky Salsa (1 jar) and stir until everything is mostly combined.
Step 7
Add to a 9x13-inch casserole dish and top with the chicken, pressing it down into the rice. Sprinkle Shredded Cheddar Cheese (1 cup) over the top.
Step 8
Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is brown and bubbling and the chicken is cooked through.
Step 9
Let cool, then serve with toppings like Scallions (to taste) or Sour Cream (to taste) .
