What's For Dinner Tonight? Mexican Inspired

This one is always a popular go-to in our house. I love that its quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive especially if you can find chicken on sale!
*2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (since this recipe also contains kidney beans and cheese this is my meat stretching dish. I use 2 chicken breasts to feed 4 of us)
*one can of drained and rinsed kidney beans
*half a green pepper
*half a jar of salsa
*can of corn (optional)
*cheese for topping

Brown chicken in a pan and cook rice in a seperate pot as per directions. Break into chunks, add green pepper and sautee until slightly tender. Add kidney beans and salsa and corn if you have/want it. Sometimes I toss in the salsa package that comes with the taco kits or some bbq sauce for an extra bit of flavor. Cook on med-high heat for another 10 minutes or so. Add in cooked rice. Serve topped with shredded cheese on its own or with a salad!
