I decided to refer to my cookbook collection to find a tasty meal last night and this was the ticket. Richard prepared it and was tickled ppink with how well it turned out. We made 4 large breasts so we used some more oil than called for and cooked them slowly so they wouldn't burn etc. This came from my Favorite brand Name Best-Loved Recipies cookbook. This tasted like rice a roni with moist chicken... yummy!

I cooked my chicken with salt and pepper, and shredded it. When it was done I added a little parsley, basil and rosemary to the rice and cheese mix. I made some broccoli in the steamer bags and mixed into my bowl to make it a complete meal in one bowl.

Obviously this isn't gourmet or the healthiest of foods either, but it is simple. I just made this in my electric skillet and it was awesome only having to dirty one thing. I prefer these skillet type recipes over the ones you bake because they are much more simple. The only thing I changed was that I added garlic and onion powder. I'm sure everyone will season to their own taste. <br/>I will make this again because it was very simple and quick!

This is a great baseline to give you a start to your meal. I tweaked it a bit though. Instead of Minute Rice, I used Basmati rice and cooked it in chicken broth, then instead of Cream of Chicken, I used more chicken broth. I added sliced carrots to the skillet along with minced onion, garlic and parsley. Salt and pepper to taste. :) It was very good, but next time I'm going to back off the cheese just a tad. Or maybe add milk.
