Mexican Chicken and Rice

This is a super-easy meal to make, and one of our favorites. It's always a big hit and people can't believe it's as easy as I tell them. Unfortunately I can't find one of the key ingredients in New York, but you can get by with what is listed here.

1 lb. chicken tenders or chicken breast
2 tsp. taco seasoning (or more if you prefer spicier)
1 c. salsa
1 c. water
2 c. minute rice, uncooked
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 can nacho cheese soup (if you can't find it, you can use cheddar cheese soup)

Brown chicken, chopping into small pieces. Bring chicken, taco seasoning, salsa, soup, and water to a boil in large skillet, cover. Reduce heat to low, simmer 10 minutes. Return to a boil. Stir in rice, sprinkle with cheese, cover. Cook on low heat 5 minutes.
