READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MandiGreeno

I got this from a gal at work and loved it. It was from a cookbook she has Easy Weeknight Suppers is all I know. I also used boneless skinless chicken breasts and it was still great.

Hey, tried this last night and even though I read it wrong and put the rice in during step 2, both my teens liked it! So did and I'll be making it again. Lots of flavor and very quick and easy. Thanks for a nice weeknight option.
