Everyone in the KRAFT KITCHENS loves one-pot recipes and this one is a favourite! Skillet-cooked chicken and rice are topped with a cheesy sauce that gets a kick of flavour from tomato salsa - sounds good, right?

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Serving Suggestion
Serve with steamed broccoli florets tossed with Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese.
Keeping it Safe
Thaw chicken in the refrigerator, allowing 5 hours per pound of chicken. Never thaw chicken at room temperature due to the risk of bacterial growth.
