Crazy Day

Well it been a crazy day around here, starting to think maybe its just our normal - had more snow over night and all water buckets are froze solid - twenty trips or so with hot water did the trick and the Farrier just pulled into the driveway (Hmmmmmm) Half hour later Little Philly can go dancing now. Now what should we have for dinner, Welllllll this was believe it or not quick and also very yummy

Chicken and Rice in one skillet
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 3/4 cups  Chicken Broth
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
1 package (16 ounces) frozen vegetable combination (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)
  • Cook the chicken in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
  • Stir the stock, basil and garlic powder in the skillet and heat to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the vegetables. Return the chicken to the skillet. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender.
  • Also I tried these rolls from Mommy's Kitchen - You will not be disappointed - Very Easy
  • Enjoy!!!!!
