Savory Chicken and Rice

Savory Chicken and Rice – a delicious and quick busy weeknight dinner.  Super easy and a sneaky way to get some vegetables in your family’s diet.  (Not that you have to sneak, right?)  You can even cheat (I won’t tell) and use a store-bough rotisserie chicken or canned chicken.  Enjoy!
