Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • Place chicken on foil-covered baking sheet; top with salsa. Bake 20 min. or until chicken is done (170ºF), topping with chips and cheese for the last 5 min.
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels. Discard drippings from skillet. Add onions to skillet; cook and stir 5 min. Stir in tomatoes; cook 4 to 5 min. or until tomatoes begin to pop, stirring occasionally. Add rice; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Stir in bacon.
  • Top chicken with sour cream. Serve with rice mixture.

Special Extra

Garnish each serving with 2 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro.


Substitute 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes for the grape tomatoes and reduce the tomato cooking time to 2 to 3 min. or until tomatoes begin to pop, stirring occasionally.

How to Crush Chips

Place tortilla chips in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Roll over bag with rolling pin for mess-free crushed chips.

Makeover - How We Did It

We made over an easy meal that will save you 100 calories and 6g of fat, including 3g of saturated fat, per serving. We did this by substituting brown rice for white rice and decreasing the amount of bacon. We also substituted Cracker Barrel Shredded Light Tex Mex Cheese and light sour cream for the full-fat products. And as a bonus, these easy-to-make changes didn't sacrifice the flavour of the original recipe!
