Chicken Rice Bowl Recipe
This is 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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings
