      SO you either have to start out with a lemon pepper breast from Tyson or the like, or do it yourself. I got mine from Angel Food last month, so those of you who get that might find this helpful.

      1 Boil in the Bag Rice (I use Uncle Ben’s – You could use regular rice also)
      Dime size bunch of Cilantro – Finely chopped
      2 Lemon Pepper Chicken Breast (you could use regular also if you wanted)
      1/2 cup chopped peppers (red, yellow, and green)
      1/2 jalepeno pepper – finely chopped
      1 teaspoon Smart Balance spread
      Your choice cooking oil

      Instead of Water for the recipe, use Chicken Broth. Boil the rice until done. Remove from water, drain excess water, and open bag into bowl or pan.

      Stir in butter. Add in Cilantro.

      While rice is cooking, brown the chicken in a skillet, add in veggies. Drain any grease and mix in with rice. Enjoy!

      Tonight I found out that you can make enough for 3 with this by adding some broccoli and carrots! I steamed them in an over the pot steamer while the rice was cooking and then mixed all of it together in the pan with the rice and it had enough for three and is excellent! The only problem I had is the stuff steamed before the rice finished so I threw all the stuff in the pan with the chicken and sauteed it together for a while!
