Garlic Chicken on Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

This recipe, from Taste of Home Best Ever Chicken Cookbook 2009, is a nice change from some of the more fruity chicken that I usually enjoy! Preparation time does not include refrigeration time!

So easy to prepare, and yet such a tasty and complete meal in one (chicken breasts with a side dish of steamed rice). But this was one of those rare dishes that appealed to both my husband and I as well as our kids. And that doesn't happen very often in this house. Thanks Syd!
