This makes an absolutely wonderful and easy chicken dinner. I made this for my niece for dinner and she thought it was fabulous. The chicken was moist, flavorful and delicious and the rice was creamy and tasty. She thought it was one of the best rice sides as well. I altered a Beef Tenderloin recipe that calls for Minute Rice, but I substituted Organic Jasmine Rice (Prepared as the recipe states for the Minute Rice (ingredients) - with adjusted time and in it’s own pot – then added to veggie pan) and it worked out perfectly. Enjoy!

Mmm I loved this, and so did my husband! I let the chicken marinate for about 2 hours in a baking dish and then I just put the entire thing in the oven at 350 for 40 minutes and made the rice on the stovetop, it was fabulous! I didn't have any zuchinni so I used a green pepper and some onions and the carrot and red pepper. Definitely a make again and again
This is very good and easy. I had DH grill up a bunch of chicken last weekend and saved enough for the recipe. Anyway, this made it easier. It tasted like South Beach Diet Frozen dinner... LOL! Very yummy... next time I will sub the white rice for brown. Thanks!
This was really good! I did add a bunch of herbs and spices, both as the chicken and veggies were cooking, and after: garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Also, I left out the mustard, and added a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan. Oh, and I doubled the recipe, which worked fine. But that was it--just a few minor changes to an already great recipe. What I liked most was that I learned a new way to cook chicken, one which I will use again and again with variations.
