- 1 ½ cups cooked, diced chicken tenderloin
- 1 cup of cooked rice (it is faster if you use instant rice)
- 1 ½ cups tomatoes (the tomatoes can be canned or freshly diced)
- 1 onion chopped up
- 2 celery stalks chopped up
- 1 bell pepper chopped up
- 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Buttered bread crumbs

- Add onions, bell peppers and celery and cook 30 minutes. Season with salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
- Place mixture in a buttered baking dish. Cover buttered crumbs
- The best method for determining whether or not meat is done is by the use of a meat thermometer. The thermometer should be inserted so that the tip is as near the center of the meat as possible, with the gauge sticking out.
