Italian Chicken & Rice for Two

“Quick and easy Italian Chicken and Rice Dinner for Two. This actually came from my browsing the internet looking for something quick and easy for dinner for myself and my husband last night. I couldn't quite find what I wanted to do, so I improvised! Note: Do not add the wine too late or it does not cook down enough and you get that wine after taste to the dish!!”

Directions

  1. In a large skillet on medium heat, add butter (or olive oil).
  2. When butter is hot, add onions, red & green bell peppers, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stirring frequently so as not to burn your onions, continue to saute on medium heat until onions are translucent.
  3. Add wine to skillet and continue to saute for another two minutes.
  4. Add chicken to skillet and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink.
  5. Add stewed tomatoes, basil, and cheese to skillet. Turn heat down to medium-low and simmer while rice is cooking, stirring occasionally.
  6. In a separate pot, make rice according to package directions.
  7. When rice is cooked, place one serving of rice on a plate, and cover with chicken saute. Serve hot. Great with Italian bread and a small salad.
