Mexican Chicken and Rice

This recipe is a product of the last minute “What’s for dinner mom?” dilemma.  It had been a crazy day and I was hunting through my cupboards and refrigerator to find something to throw together.  We really liked the result and it was nice to use up some of my leftovers at the same time. 

Some of us ate it as is, some rolled it up in a tortilla and some used it to make taco salad.  It’s a nice versatile meal.
