Just before Christmas I received a package. I was so excited when I opened it and found a gift package given to me courtesy of Foodbuzz and Newman's Own (THANK YOU!!). Because of my participation in Foodbuzz Tastemaker program i was asked to present a plan for some meal ideas. They liked my plan and I was sent this cool box and my challenge was to create recipes using The Newman's Own Sauces. It was crazy (because I only had 2 weeks) but oh so fun!!I would do it again in a heartbeat. I had never used The Newman's Own brand before and I was so impressed!! I will be buying them now. I now need to share the recipes I submitted with you. This first one was inspired by my friend. Thanks Katie!!
1 medium onion, diced
½ cup uncooked long grain rice
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Place onion and chicken into a skillet and cook for about 5 minutes or until chicken is brown. You can sprinkle with garlic salt and chili powder if you want.
Take off heat, add the rest of the ingredients except cheese and olives. and stir to mix well.
Pour into a 9 x 13 casserole dish and cover with foil.
