  • 1 tablespoon Pure Wesson® Vegetable Oil
  • 8 chicken drumsticks or thighs (8 drumsticks = about 2-1/2 lb)
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice, uncooked
  • 2 10 ounce cans Ro*Tel® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
  • 1 8 ounce can Hunt's® Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions, divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until golden brown on all sides, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.
Add rice to drippings in skillet; stir to coat. Cook over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until rice browns a bit, stirring occasionally. Stir in undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, and about half of the onions; blend well. Bring to a boil. Top with chicken; cover. Reduce heat to low; simmer 20 minutes or until drumsticks are no longer pink in center and juices run clear (180 degrees F).
Sprinkle chicken with cheese and the remaining onions; cover. Cook an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts, liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
