Basque Chicken and Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by JazzysNamma

This is a simple, quick and tasty dish. It is obviously kid friendly because my 1 1/2 year old granddaughter ate 2 helpings at dinner, then more for breakfast and lunch the next day! This is courtesy of The Frugal Gourmet - On Our Immigrant Ancestors.

This meal was tasty and quick! I used frozen cooked chicken breast. The family liked this a lot, thank you!
