Moterrey chicken & Spanish Rice

I originally got the chicken recipe off of a website called www.aimeesadventures.com, not sure if its still active or not. Think I got this one back in 2005 on my first run of WW.

I like this chicken recipe because you can scale it to the number of chicken breasts you have. Like tonight I only have 3 so I will just 3/4 cup cheese and 3 Tbsp of BBQ and bacon bits (1/4c = 4 Tbsp for those of you who forget) :)

Monterrey Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup bbq sauce
1/4 cup real bacon bits
1 cup colby blend shredded cheese
1 can rotel (diced tomatoes & chiles), drained.*
sliced green onions (optional)
ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound out the chicken to flatten. Season each with a little pepper. Cook the chicken in a skillet over medium-low until cooked thru (no longer pink). Place each breast on a coated (with cooking spray) jelly roll (cookie sheet with sides) or large brownie pan and top each breast with 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce, 1/4 cup cheese, 1/4 cup rotel, green onions, and 1 Tbsp bacon bits.
Bake until cheese has melted (about 5 minutes).

* Recipe calls for 14oz but my can is 10oz and will be fine for 3 breasts.

Spanish Rice
6 servings / 3 points

1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
1 can (14.5 oz) stewed tomatoes (I've also used diced ok)
1 cup uncooked longrain rice
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp italian seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic salt

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
