Chicken and Rice in Wine-herb Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by echo echo

Very presentable and easy to make. Time does not include cooking time for the rice. I use the light whipped cream cheese with garlic and herbs. I believe you can substitute Boursin or other spreadable cheese, as well, though I haven't tried that.

This was great & easy! A great way to make a cream sauce without cream. I mixed w/ penne instead of rice beacause I had some already cooked up. Either way would be good.
