Chicken Rice Skillet

Pleasant seasonings and plenty of vegetables highlight this traditional chicken and rice pairing. Leftovers are great reheated in the microwave. —Jan Balata, Kilkenny, Minnesota

    We used Lemon Pepper marinated chicken from the store and not used the lemon pepper seasoning. It was delicious. My husband liked it but thought it was a little too spicy and maybe use regular chicken next time. My picky daughter also liked it and my picky son only said he didn't like it because of the peppers.

    Not bad but made changes. I cut chicken up into bite size pieces, I omitted the red and yellow peppers and added carrots and sweet peas and omitted all seasonings except salt and pepper. After rice was tender I added some velveeta. The kids loved it.
