A flavorful chicken tender recipe.

Top Review by Bonnie G 2

So simple and full of flavor but not overly spicy. The thing I did a little different was instead of finishing off the chicken in the oven, I just placed them back on top of the rice when it was cooking and let it finish off there. Loved the flavor infused into the chicken plus only one pan to wash, a win-win for me.
