Let's Make It
Heat 2 Tbsp. dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 min. on each side or until each piece is golden brown on both sides. Remove from skillet.
Add peppers and onions to skillet; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Add broth, rice, cumin and remaining dressing to skillet; stir. Bring to boil. Top with chicken; cover.
Simmer on medium-low heat 25 to 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF) and rice is tender. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, 5 min. Sprinkle with cilantro.
For a touch of spice, add 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne) to the cooked vegetables with the broth, rice, cumin and remaining dressing.
How to Safely Handle Raw Chicken
Always wash hands, preparation surfaces and utensils in hot, soapy water before and after contact with raw chicken. Dry hands and surfaces with a clean towel or paper towels. Take special care in washing worn cutting boards as there may be hard-to-clean grooves or cracks that can collect bacteria.
