Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • Salt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 ounces cooked chorizo sausage, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
  • 3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 15-oz. can diced tomatoes, drained

Preparation

1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and dredge in flour. Warm 1 Tbsp. oil in a large, deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.
