Creamy Arroz con Pollo

A while back I decided to buy some Progresso Recipe Starters because I wanted to try them, they were at a great price, and it seemed like such a great way to help make a home cooked meal so much easier.

Then, like a week later, I got invited on the Progresso Recipe Starters Campaign through Bzz Agent! I love this program and think it is an awesome way to try new products as well as give companies and others your opinion of different products.

I honestly thought tonight was going to be an easy night. But then when I looked in the pantry and freezer, I decided I actually wanted to cook something. BUT to my surprise it was still an easy night!

I decided to make Creamy Arroz con Pollo, simply because I had everything to make it.

Here is what you need:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
1 cup converted or regular long-grain white rice
2 tablespoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
1 can (18 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy roasted garlic with chicken stock cooking sauce
1 can (15 oz) Progresso® black beans, drained, rinsed
1 cup Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers® frozen corn
Sliced ripe olives
Sliced green onions

Here's what you do:
1 - Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste. In 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot. Cook chicken in oil 4 to 5 minutes or until browned, turning once. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
2 - Add rice and taco seasoning mix to skillet; stir to mix well. Stir in cooking sauce and 1/2 cup water. Heat to boiling; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in beans and frozen corn; heat to boiling.
3 - Return chicken to skillet. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, rice is tender and juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Sprinkle with olives and green onions.
4 - Top with Sliced ripe olives and Sliced green onions, if desired.

You can find this recipe at Progresso's website HERE. I will admit that I did not use the exact name brand products that it states. But none-the-less it was very yummy.

This meal was very yummy, quick, and easy. I will definitely start putting this on my Monday Meal Planner list. :)

  3. That looks great! I'm trying to get more meal ideas lately because we are stuck in a rut - I'll have to check this one out! :-)

    1. I love trying out new recipes. Before I stayed at home, we would either eat out or I would cook the same things. Which is probably one of the main reasons I hated cooking. My mom was never very good and so I've had to learn as I go. But now that I have a few years of cooking for my family under my belt (literally, HA!), I enjoy it more and more. :)
