Chicken and Rice Primavera

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lainey39

This is a tasty skillet meal that is very quick to put together. You can substitute vegetables, if you like. I always use broccoli. I sometimes substitute the peas for a corn, carrot and asparagus mixture I find in the frozen food section. I love those bags that you just steam partially and then add to the skillet to cook until crisp-tender. I like to brown my chicken in butter so it's very flavorful.

A simple mid week family dish, that was easily adapted to the contents of my fridge.
I didn't have instant brown rice, so used ordinary long grain, adding more stock to it, as it wasn't going to be enough to cook it otherwise, and added a few minutes to the cooking time.
A tasty dish, that we all enjoyed.
Made for PRMR.
