Ingredients40 m servings 599 cals
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Mix together adobo seasoning, paprika, black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon of the chili powder. Season 1 side chicken breasts with the mixture.
- Place olive oil in a large saucepan over medium; heat until the oil shimmers. Place chicken pieces in hot oil, seasoned side down. Brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
- Add chopped onion to pot and cook over medium heat until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add rice, Hunt's(R) Diced Tomatoes (drained), corn, garlic, and remaining 2 teaspoons of chili powder, stirring to combine.
- When ingredients are well combined, add chicken broth, and stir.
- Place browned chicken pieces on top of the rice mixture, with browned side up, being careful not to submerge chicken.
- Cover and bake 15 minutes, then remove lid and continue baking about 5 minutes more.
- When chicken internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), place a slice of tomato and slices of avocado on top of each piece, and place a slice of pepper jack cheese on top.
- Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted, 3-4 minutes.
- Plate cooked chicken, then fluff rice with a fork, and serve alongside chicken. Garnish with fresh cilantro and snipped chives, if desired.
- Cook's Note:
- Though this recipe has only 4 chicken pieces, it would easily serve 6 if chicken pieces are sliced. This is not what I would consider a spicy dish, so you may want to add additional heat, if desired.

We thought this was very tasty. Making the individual parts of the dish separately and then adding them together would make it very easy, too. Mine did take a while longer to bake because the ...
This was very good! Made it to the recipe but I made this in a skillet. The tomatoes really added a lot of flavor to this dish. Next time I'm keeping the juices as well so the rice can soak it...
Delicious! For taste preference, I added some seasoning salt to the rice mixture before it went into the oven.
