My 2 little guys (at the time) couldn't get enough! This is an EZ & very delicious skillet meal with items usually found in my house. In the 80's it was an "Old Standby" and has just been resurrected (Jan 2010). It comes from "The Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library" (I enjoyed getting new cards every week back then). PREP time does NOT include marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinate the chicken in the first 3 ingredients (soy sauce, water, garlic powder) at least one hour on each side (overnight is best).
  2. Cook chicken in a covered skillet over medium heat 30 minutes or until tender. REMOVE CHICKEN, set aside & keep warm.
  3. Add to the marinade in the skillet, the water chestnuts & the green peppers. (Start cooking rice - the 20 minute type). Cook the vegetables, covered, until the green peppers are tender - about 20 minutes.
  4. Stir together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water in a bowl. REMOVE THE SKILLET FROM THE HEAT. Add the cornstarch mix to the skillet (with the vegys) and stir to evenly mix the liquids. RETURN THE SKILLET TO THE HEAT and stir, stir, stir until thickened and bubbly.
  5. Place rice in a serving dish. Top the rice with the chicken, then pour the vegy sauce over it all.
  6. ENJOY!
