4 Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into strips
1 Onion, diced
1 Green Pepper, diced
6 Garlic Cloves, diced
4 Cups Chicken Broth
2 Cups Water
1 Cup Light Beer or 1/2 Cup Dry Sherry + 1/2 Cup Water
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 Bag Frozen Mixed Vegetables (I use carrots, broccoli & cauliflower)
1 Bag Frozen Peas
1/4-1/2 Cup Green Pimento Olives (or to taste)
3 Tablespoons Goya Adobo Seasoning*
1 Cup Cilantro (or to taste), chopped
1 Cup Ketchup
3 Cups Instant Rice
*If you don't have access to Goya Adobo Seasoning, you can make your own by combining 1 Tablespoon of each of the following: Lemon Pepper, Cumin, Garlic Powder, Salt, Oregano, Parsley.
Here's the best part - you can also freeze it and it will come out just as delish! I simply put my leftovers in a doubled freezer bag. When I'm ready to have it for dinner again in a couple of weeks, I'll take it out the night before and let it defrost in the refrigerator. Microwave in a large bowl and serve! This would be a great go-to meal if you're having house guests for the upcoming holidays!
I put this recipe in my Weight Watcher's Points Calculator, and it came out to only 5 Points for 1 Cup! Not too shabby, especially if served with a side salad or another helping of broccoli. I can tell you, though, that I was full..I mean really full...on 1.5 Cups! You could probably bring the Points value down even further if you used brown rice, too - that instant rice has a high points value.

There are a lot of ingredients in this one - many of which are from The Pantry, so I did a rough estimate including the fresh ingredients and it came out to about $9.00 Total, which serves 12 people.
Total Fake-It Cost: $0.75 Per Person
