Pensacola News Journal had this a while back and it sounds good.
Cook bacon in a medium saucepan until crispy. Meanwhile, core and mince red pepper. Remove bacon from pan and cook red pepper in bacon drippings for 5 minutes over medium heat. Add rice, 3 cups water and salt. Bring to a boil, cover and cook 18 minutes. When the rice is done, crumble the bacon and stir it into the rice. Meanwhile, slice chicken into thin strips, about 1/2 inch by 3 inches. Mince garlic and onions. Heat oil in a wide skillet over high heat. Add garlic, chicken and onions, then measure spices and add to the skillet. Cook 4-5 minutes, stirring, until chicken is opaque. Serve chicken with rice pilaf. Serves 4.
