What’s Cooking, Love?

Hi, I am Alyssa from What’s Cooking, Love?
I am so excited to be here guest posting at Project Queen.
I love Mandy’s blog and I like to party at her Turning the Daunting into the Doable Link Party!
I am a wife to my wonderful husband and a mother to my 10 month old son.  I like to blog about cooking and love food!  My blog is about cooking easy, good food, using shortcuts and timesavers.  I also host a weekly link party, Showcase Your Talent Thursday.  I hope that you stop by and visit.  
This Cheddar Chicken and Rice Skillet is a perfect example of an easy time saving meal.  This is a one dish meal that is easy to make and is great for a fast dinner or a weeknight meal.  When my husband and I get home from work, we are usually hungry and don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking dinner.
This meal is quick, without a lot of prep, and doesn’t dirty a lot of dishes.  This meal was really good and and more vegetables can be added to it if you wanted.  This dish tastes great and is easy to make. We will be making this dish again! Enjoy!!


Cheddar Chicken and Rice Skillet

(Recipe adapted from Kraft Food and Family Magazine Fall 2006)

1/2 cup reduced fat or fat free Italian dressing

2 cups of precooked chicken, cubed

2 cups brown rice, uncooked

1 1/4 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth

1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes

1 cup of reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1.  Heat the Italian dressing in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and garlic powder and cook and stir for 2 minutes.

2.  Stir in the rice and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil and cover.  Then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes or until the rice is tender.  Let stand covered, 5 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.

3.  Add the tomatoes and the cheddar cheese and stir until blended.

Thank you so much to Mandy for allowing me to guest post!
I hope that you stop by and visit me at What’s Cooking, Love?!

    Throw him a curve ball and ask him to deep fry some sweet potato fires and deep fried green beans. Of course a pumpkin pie (baked) and a green salad goes with any meal.
