Ingredients

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1 cup chopped onion

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces

3 cloves garlic, minced or 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 Tablespoons minced jalapeno pepper

1 1/2 cups chopped bell pepper

3 cups (28-oz can) diced or crushed tomatoes, including juice

1 1/2 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups cooked brown rice

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions
