My twist on the typical chicken and rice recipe. Added some spinach and carrots to get more veggies in our diet. This can be baked or cooked in skillet. I'm sure it would work in a crockpot too. I use a bit of ranch dressing mix and/or garlic and onion powder for flavor. Season to suit your taste or just cook as recipe states.
