  • Fresh cilantro leaves optional


  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Add chicken and seasoning; sauté until chicken is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Feel free to substitute rice with potatoes. If you don't want to use canned chicken, you can use boneless chicken breast cut into 1-inch pieces.
