This is just as promised, simple. Since I never buy instant rice mine took quite a bit longer but that was fine, I just started the rice sooner and let it till 99% done and then proceeded with the recipe. I did sprinkle the chicken with garlic powder while it was browning. All in all it made a hearty yet simple dinner served with green peas.
