vegetable oil, or as needed

1 1/2 pounds
1 1/2 (10 ounce) cans
diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)
I loved this, so much so that I ended up having 2 servings. I scaled down the recipe to 4 servings (since I only had 1lb of ground chicken and 1 can of Rotel), but followed the recipe exactly. Super easy to make, very healthy, high protein and definitely hits the spot. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare ground chicken. I'll be making this one often. I suggest adding salt and pepper while browning the meat to really bring out the flavors. For those saying it's bland...try salt! It does wonders. I can't wait to have this for lunch tomorrow! Yum! EDITED TO ADD: Yup, just as delish the next day! I'm thinking this would be excelled stuffed into a pita, or as a filling for stuffed peppers.
Not bad except that I simmered this for quite a while after mixing all ingrediants but the chicken seemed to still lack flavour. t needs a little something before the Rotel goes in. Definitely salt and pepper, wished I had some lime juice would have liked to try that. Will make again for sure but give the chicken a boost with something.
I LOVE this recipe. I make it quite often, it is pretty easy and not a lot of ingredients. The lime juice makes a pretty big difference, so don't forget it! :-)
We really enjoyed this very easy to make dish. I did use chopped baked chicken breast instead of ground chicken. I used a whole onion chopped and just one can of Rotel. I did add a can of rinsed black beans. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe StephR0131.
After preparing it according to the recipe I thought it was a little bland. I noticed one of the reviews mentioned lime juice so I added lime juice, fresh cilantro, a little paprika and a little season salt. This helped give it a little extra flavor and the family enjoyed it.
So this was really good. I made some changes based on the reviews and what I had on hand. Used 2 boneless chicken breasts, cubed. Browned them with the garlic and onion. Added 2 whole cans of Rotel tomatoes and the cooked quinoa, along with a can of black beans (rinsed and drained), a little salt and about a tablespoonful of dried cilantro, and served with a squeeze of lime. Husband and I both liked very much! Will definitely make again!
Simple and colorful and tasty!
turned out great!
