A quick “Chicken and Rice” dinner. But it didn’t seem like a chicken and rice dinner. Simple, yet TASTY!
I might have a new “weekend” favorite with this one. I try to keep our meals simple on the weekend, spaghetti, tacos, and now this…I’ll save my cooking and blogging energy for the week days!
I marinated this chicken in some canola oil and Emeril’s Essence seasonings. Then froze.
Then thawed. Then baked.
BAM!!!!! (Said with all of Emeril’s gusto!)
