Chicken Rice Bowl

These rice bowls are so easy to toss together on a busy weeknight, and I usually have the ingredients on hand. I start sauteing the onion and pepper first, then I prepare the instant rice. If you like, top it with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

    I made 2 cups of rice (Just added enough water to the broth to make 2 cups), and added a few more vegetables just because we love rice. Very good and quick!

    this was really good, my husband went back for seconds. The sage was a little overpowering. Next time I won't add so much sage.

    Tasty! It was like a light version of fried rice sans the egg. I didn't have peas & carrots either; but it was flavorful even just with the onion/peppers.
