Easy Arroz Con Pollo

This was an easy to prepare, one dish meal, that is tasty and healthy.  I garnished with low fat sour cream and some cayenne peppers from the garden and served a side of fat free refried beans with it.  So, very good!!!

Easy Arroz Con Pollo
adapted from Taste of Home, The Comfort Food Diet

1-1/2 cups uncooked instant rice
3 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Garlic powder and pepper to taste
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1-1/2 cup picante sauce
1 can (8 ounce) tomato sauce
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 medium green pepper, diced
1-1/2 cup shredded cheddar

Spread the rice in a greased 13x9 inch baking dish.  Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with garlic salt and pepper; place over rice.  In a bowl, combine the broth, picante sauce, tomato sauce, onion and green pepper; pour over the chicken.  Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or until the rice is tender and the chicken juices run clear.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Bake, uncovered, 5 mninutes longer or until cheese is melted.
