Yum! It was a gloomy rainy day yesterday and this comfort food dish hit the spot last night! It was a super easy dish to prep and fast clean up as well! Which is always nice of me to do since my husband does most of the clean up after dinner! Yes, I have him well trained!
Chicken and Rice
4 bone in, skin on split chicken breasts (I usually peel the skin off, but since it was a comfort food night I let myself indulge!)
1 tablespoon olive
salt and pepper for chicken
1 cup brown rice
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tblsp dried chopped onion or 1/2 c chopped fresh onion (I chose the dried to make prep fast and easy!)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
Spray 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Add rice, broth, and seasonings. Rub chicken with olive and season with salt and pepper. Gently lay chicken over rice mix. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour 30 min to 1 hour 45 min or until chicken is no longer pink and rice is tender. If rice looks like it is getting dry you can pour more chicken broth over.
Best Ever Green Beans
1 pound fresh green beans ends trimmed
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion sliced
1/2 green pepper sliced
2 slices turkey bacon chopped small
2 cloves garlic minced
1 cup chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
Saute onions and garlic in melted butter for a minute or two over medium heat. Add green beans and bacon and cook until beans turn bright green about another minute or two. Add green peppers and chicken broth. Reduce heat to low and cover but leave the lid cracked to allow steam to escape. Cook until most of the broth has evaporated and the green beans are cooked but still have a slight crunch to them. About 30 minutes.
