Chicken and Rice Oriental

READY IN: 24mins
Recipe by jmelyn

Easy, easy dinner. I make this a lot when my husband is gone and I don't feel like cooking anything complicated. Makes great leftovers for lunch the next day. I usually cheat and use a roasted chicken from the supermarket--I just heat the shredded meat in butter for a few minutes in step one instead of cooking it.

This was very good! I added more peanut butter, soy sauce and brown sugar than the recipe called for. Thanks so much!
