Italian Chicken and Rice

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by anonymous

This recipe originally came off of either the back of a box of minute rice or the back of a can of green beans - I can't recall which! I have adapted it to my tastes. For me it is a quick easy weeknight meal that is even better as leftovers! I also love that it is a one-dish meal for easy clean-up!

My family loves this, but I've found there isn't nearly enough liquid for the rice. I have to add a substantial amount for it to come out anywhere near soft. Other than that, it's a good recipe. I'd just add another can of chicken broth/water and maybe not drain the green beans.
