Snapshot 2 (10-3-2017 9-49 AM)

Years ago, I wrote this recipe down on a scrap piece of paper, but I never made it.  I stumbled across the recipe recently when I was organizing my recipes and was pleasantly surprised at how simple and delicious this chicken and rice dish is.  I was expecting bland and flavorless, but this is anything but that! I hope you enjoy it! This is one of those recipes that will be sure to stay in my recipe repertoire for fast and easy! Enjoy! -Janelle
