Chicken & Rice Bowl - Only 1 Pan Needed!

This dish may be my current favorite because of its simplicity! Just throw everything in a pan, let it simmer, and you are done! Isn't it nice to make a healthy and fulfilling meal without a huge clean up required? I think so!

Also, this is a great recipe to use up whatever random items in your fridge need to be used up. Most of us probably have some rice hidden in our pantry, a source of protein like chicken, a can of random beans, and an assortment of veggies. Use them all up in this recipe to minimize food waste and create a delicious meal!
