Recipe by SweetsLady 3

I adapted this recipe from a Betty Crocker cookbook. One pan to clean is just a bonus to this tasty dinner.

This was really good; it needed a bit of something but not sure what. I added a bit of salt at the table and that helped but it was still lacking a bit of...? I really don't think this would serve more than 4 people. I followed the recipe exactly but the only rice box I could find was 6 1/4 ounces, so I followed the directions on the box for how much water to add (1 3/4 c.) and that worked perfectly. I LOVED that there was just one pan to clean up, and this was quick to put together and easy too. I'm going to keep this in my permanent file for when I need a really quick and simple meal. Made for PAC Spring '11.
