1 can Rotel tomatoes & green chilies
1 tsp salt
1 tsp coarse ground black pepper
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
3 cups cooked rice

Boil chicken and cut into pieces (may add 1 pound cooked shrimp or crawfish tails). Saute chicken, garlic, onions, celery and bell pepper in butter until wilted. Chop ro-tel tomatoes and add to vegetables. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add salt, pepper, parsley and green onions. Cook 1 minute to heat well. Mix with rice. Serve as a side dish.
