Cafe Sabor's Rice con Pollo

I have my favorites and I never deviate from them. Whenever I go to a restaurant, I always choose the same thing. In Logan there is this GREAT Mexican Restaurant called Cafe Sabor. The first time there I tried this dish called Rice con Pollo (or something similar) and I get it every time. SO SO good. I have been thinking about it for a couple of days and I wanted to recreate it. I don't have the recipe but I figured I'd guess. It turned out very tasty, and I think probably quite healthy.
Cube 2 medium chicken breasts. Saute the chicken breast in water (spices: sugar, salt, little pepper, crushed red pepper, chili pepper ... I don't know how much.) Remove chicken and set aside. Cut 1 onion, 1/2 red pepper, 1 green pepper, 3 stalks green onion, 2 tomatoes into chunks. Cook with 3 Tbsp olive oil and same spices listed above until tomatoes mash and peppers are tender -- not mushy. Add 3 cups cooked long grain rice. Stir together until rice is coated. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

It is quite tasty ... you should try it!

Bless you, guess those veggies from yesterday are coming in handy!
I had some peppers that I meant to bring. They are still in my fridge. Oops!
Looks great, Jen.
