      2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
      4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut into bite-size pieces*
      1/2 cup long-grain white rice
      1/2 cup onions, chopped
      1 (14.5-ounce) can whole tomatoes, drained
      1 (7-ounce) jar “roasted” red peppers, drained
      1 cup fat-free chicken broth
      1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
      1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
      1/4 teaspoons salt or to taste
      Pinch of saffron, crushed
      1 cup frozen petite peas
      Coarsely ground black pepper to taste

      • The U.S. Department of Agriculture, as well as food agencies in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, advises against washing poultry. Rinsing chicken will not remove or kill much bacteria, and the splashing of water around the sink can spread the bacteria found in raw chicken. Cooking poultry to 165 degrees Fahrenheit effectively destroys the most common culprits behind food-borne illness.

      In a large non-stick frying pan over medium high heat, heat olive oil; add chicken pieces and saute, turning until browned, approximately 7 minutes. Remove chicken and transfer to a plate; set aside.

      In the same frying pan, stir together rice and onion; cook approximately 2 minutes or until rice is translucent. Stir in tomatoes, red peppers, chicken broth, parsley, rosemary, salt and saffron. Return chicken to pan; cover and let simmer for 25 minutes. Stir in frozen peas and pepper; cook until rice is tender and almost all liquid is absorbed, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.

      Makes 4 servings.
