One Pot Mexican Inspired Chicken and Rice

I really like that this is all done in one pot without a ton of dishes to clean as you cook.  This is a great, simple and delicious meal.  The rice and veggies combined with the chicken are definitely a winner.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-2 Tbs vegetable oil
-4 chicken thighs, skin on, bone in
-salt and pepper
-1 red bell pepper, chopped
-1 green bell pepper, chopped
-1/2 small red onion, chopped
-2 cups water
-1 cup chunky salsa
-2 cups minute white rice, uncooked
-12 oz frozen corn
-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Directions:
Heat oil in large sauce pan.  Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper on both sides.  Add to hot oil, skin side down.  Cook for 5 minutes on each side.
Add the bell peppers and onion.  Season with some salt and pepper and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the water and salsa.  Mix well and bring to a boil.  Stir in the rice and corn.  Mix well.  Sprinkle with the cheese and turn the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Scoop onto plates and enjoy!
