Cheesy Salsa Chicken & Rice

This is another family favorite! My kids love the cheesey mixture on their chicken and mommy loves how easy it is!

4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
1-3/4 cups water
2 cups instant brown rice or white rice, uncooked
1/4 lb. (4 oz.) Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product (Velvetta) , cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 cup Chunky Salsa

TO Make:
HEAT large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray or use a few drops of oil on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 min. on each side. Remove chicken from skillet; set aside.

ADD water and rice to skillet; stir. Bring to boil. Return chicken to skillet; cover. Reduce heat to medium; cook 5 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF). Remove skillet from heat. Let stand, covered, 5 min. or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.

MEANWHILE, combine VELVEETA cheese and salsa in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2 min. or until VELVEETA is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after each minute. Serve over the chicken and rice.

  1. This isn't only a great "basic" and easy dish but using the low fat cheese could make it pretty weight watcher friendly too I think?! This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
