This was so simple to make! I couldn't decide if it was going to be Mexican or Italian when reading the recipe. In the end, it didn't matter because it was very flavorsome. So quick to make, it's great for weeknights when everyone is in a hurry!

My husband couldn't get enough of it and loves it. He tries to be low carb, so we just eliminated the rice and it was great. I did salt and pepper the chicken before cooking it, but it doesn't need much. He can't wait for me to cook it again!
