  7. In the same skillet, add the diced onion, minced garlic, and bell pepper.
  8. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the onions are translucent.
  9. Slice the cooked chicken breasts into strips.
  10. Add the cooked rice to the skillet with the vegetables and stir to combine.
  11. Place the chicken strips on top of the rice and vegetable mixture.
  12. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
