This dish was a great find. The meal came together with such ease and was delicious! That's two thumbs up for this working gal. Not to mention it's a pretty well balanced meal. I'm going to make sure we incorporate this dinner in our regular rotation. Try it out, and I think you'll do the same. :)
Yields 4 servings
1 (6 oz) package long grain and wild rice pilaf mix
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup water
1 cup broccoli florets
2 tsp olive oil
4 thin sliced boneless chicken breast halves, marinated in lite Italian dressing
1 medium tomato, halved and thinly sliced
3-4 slices mozzarella cheese, halved
Prepare rice according to package directions, adding green onions for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil; add broccoli. Cover and cook for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender, drain and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook 8-10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning once. Overlap tomato slices on top of chicken. Spoon broccoli over tomato slices, and cover broccoli with a half-slice of cheese (I used 2 half slices on larger pieces of chicken). Cover skillet and crank heat up a little higher to melt cheese.
Serve over rice.
