I made this with a few changes and it was a fabulous weeknight dinner. For 2 of us. I used one 9-ounce chicken breast that I pounded to about 1/2 inch. I coated the breast with taco seasoning and sauteed it about 3 minutes per side. I then topped it with half of a large poblano chile that I had roasted and peeled. I added the pepper jack cheese (more than called for) and put the lid on (no heat) and let the cheese melt before serving. For the Rice and Beans I used leftover Spanish rice from a box and added half a can of black beans, a can of drained mexicorn, about 1/3 cup chopped green pepper, about 1/3 cup of chopped onion, and a small jar of pimento.
To crank up the heat in this dish, top each piece of chicken with sliced jalapeños.
