Good morning and Happy Monday!
I know most folks hate Mondays. If I were still in corporate america, I probably would hate it too. But, as a Mom, Mondays are secretly my favorite. The kids are exhausted from the weekend. They are pretty chill and willing to do what I ask them to do. I may have to threaten the rest of the weeks activities, but for the most part, Mondays are a peaceful day around my house.
It’s also the one guaranteed day that we’ll have a semi put together meal as a family, followed by an evening of just being together. Today’s post is the perfect recipe for such days. It’s simple and a definite crowd pleaser. Combined with some fresh fruit and my kids’ favorite chips and salsa, this is the perfect family meal. I hope you’ll enjoy sitting down as a family tonight 🙂
- 1 lb Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, thinly sliced
- 1 package chicken flavor rice, such as ricearoni

HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 6
ANY CHANGES MADE: We used rice a roni instead of white rice, used canned corn instead of frozen, no yogurt, no salsa, used Monterrey jack cheese instead of cheddar and no cilantro
ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT TIME: Not sure why we left out the cilantro. Next time, we’ll add it back in. Cilantro makes everything better.
