Chicken and Roasted Corn Mexican Rice

Jan 6, 2016 | Chicken, Appetizers/Sides, Skinny Palate | Tags: , , ,

This Chicken and Roasted Corn Mexican Rice is such a flavor packed simple dinner to have as an accompaniment or eaten on it’s own.

I’m always looking for simple dinner ideas and this “healthier” Chicken and Roasted Corn Mexican Rice will be put on repeat from now on.  It’s great with taco night, burritos or in a bowl with a spoon with your favorite salsa.  I used the roasted corn from Trader Joe’s freezer section.  I highly recommend it if you haven’t tried it yet.  This roasted corn has become a staple in my freezer, I have used it for so many dinners lately.

It’s so great in soups too!  Especially Mexican style soups!

Hope you enjoy this simple yet completely delicious mexican rice!
