Quick Mexican Chic

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!

  1. 1. In a large sauce pan add all ingredients.  Bring to a simmer and continue to cook over medium-low heat until chicken is cooked through and potato is soft.  Serve over cooked rice
