A very quick and easy way to prepare dinner for 4, in a skillet. To make Curried Chicken Dinner, prepare the same recipe, omitting the paprika. Add 1/2 Tbsp. curry powder to the broth mixture and 1/2 cup raisins with vegetables. Garnish with freshly diced apples, if desired. Another great way to serve this basic is Cranberry Chicken Dinner. Add 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1 tsp. poultry seasoning to broth mixture. Replace plain rice with long grain and wild rice blend. For vegetables, use 1 cup each, sliced celery, and chopped onions.
