One Pan Broccoli Rice and Chicken

I am finding that one pan meals are my hero right now.  Since school started I feel I haven’t had a minute to breath let alone make dinner.  Most of the time I want to stop off at our favorite ChickFilA  fast food restaurant just to grab a chicken sandwich just so I can mark everything else off my to do list.  These are the days when I love one pan meals like this one.  As long as you add all the ingredients to your grocery list for the week, it won’t take long at all to get a good meal on the table even when you are feeling overwhelmed.  For extra support I get the kids or the hubby to help with dinner too.  This is one of our favorite recipes to make!  I highly suggest you give it a try.

The only other tip I have for you is to make sure you use a big enough pan to handle this meal.  I like to use a deep dish frying pan like this one or a large sauce pan.
