1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1-1/4 cups chicken broth
1 can (10oz) diced tomatoes and green chilis, undrained
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp each pepper and ground cumin

In a large skillet, saute onion and jalapeno in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in broth and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Stir in rice.
Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and cumin; place over rice mixture. Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes on each side (or until meat thermometer reads 170).
Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese; cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
