This really is a fast meal! Great for a busy night. Used boneless skinless chicken thighs as we prefer those over breasts. The only thing that I would do different would be to use a little more sauce as it was a little dry, but I most definitely like the ease and quickness of this recipe. Made for 123 Hits.
As with several others who made your recipe, I used brown rice, but otherwise followed your recipe on down & we thoroughly enjoyed this quick & tasty chicken meal! I ofetn combine peas or green beans with rice, so this was right up my alley! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits Tag]
Nice quick family weeknight meal. I used a brown rice that was not packaged so I cooked it first with the peas and then added to the skillet. Worked out fine and the tastes were very nice. A nice change of pace from other skillet meals in our rotation. Thanks for a nice recipe! Made for I Recommend Tag game.

I love to make new meals and try new things; it is hard though because my husband is picky when it comes to veggies (and hates seafood); If it were up to him we would have baked-bread crumb chicken and white rice at least one meal a day! Over the past couple years with zaar, I have found tons of new recipes my family normally wouldn’t eat but have been happily surprised with new favorites.</strong></span></p> <p><span><strong>I love to join in all of the tag games; I haven't been as present as I would like, but as soon as my Jeff is back from working in Ohio I will be back in full tagging mode! </strong></span></p> <p><span><strong>Cooking is my hobby and passion, I always like to host the family get togethers and volunteer for the potluck dishes.
