A simple dish that is tasty. I just increase the volume according to how many people I am feeding.

  4. Spread chicken with pesto and lay on top of rice mixture (pesto side up).
  5. Cover and reduce heat and simmer, for 20 to 25 minutes or until rice and chicken are cooked.
  6. Serve with steamed vegetables.
