I like simple. Especially when it comes to meals for my family. When meal planning, I tend to look for dishes that won’t require a lot of time taken away from them, and won’t require a lot of clean up afterward. I want to spend the majority of my time feasting and celebrating around the table with them, so I want a meal that is simple, tasty, and perfect for all ages. This dish fits that bill perfectly!
Cilantro-Lime Chicken & Rice
3 c. instant brown rice
2 1/4 c. water
¼ c. lime juice
fresh cilantro, chopped
10 chicken tenderloins
lemon pepper & salt
Spread rice in the bottom of a 10″ x 15″ casserole dish. Add water and lime juice, and gently stir to mix and saturate rice. Sprinkle cilantro leaves across the rice, and lay chicken on top of the rice and water. Season, and cover tightly with foil. Bake in 375° oven for 50 minutes.
This is an E meal for Trim Healthy Mama.
This is a great dish to serve to your family on a busy night or when you have company over because it leaves plenty of time to just be with your family and friends. The flavors mix perfectly, and there’s really no need to add anything else to the meal. However, if you feel like there needs to be something else, a green salad with an Italian dressing or vinaigrette would be yummy!
