Quick Mexican Chicken

This is one of those homey, easy to prepare, delicious dinners I love for a midweek meal.  Everyone in my family is happy when I serve this.  It has lots of chunks of chicken, veggies and a mild yummy tomato sauce.  I serve it over rice to make sure you can sop up any extra tomato sauce.  This recipe is also really good for you.  The chicken is cooked in the tomato sauce instead of being sauteed  first so there is no extra oil.  The veggies get all soft so your kids will hopefully eat them with out even realizing they are in there(you could probably sneak extra in if you like).  I think this is even better the next day if your lucky enough to have some left over.  Next time your busy, but still need a quick and tasty meal, try this one out!

  10. I am constantly craving meals like this where there is some saucy meat served over rice. I find these dishes so comforting, but they usually aren't healthy. I love that yours is healthy. Adding this recipe to my to-do list:D
