You know that one healthy dish you make for your kids that you know they’ll eat up quickly without complaining? Yup, this One-Pot Chicken Rice and Vegetables is it for my kids.
It’s a well balanced meal that includes protein, vegetables and carbs with simple flavors for little palettes and it’s all made in one pot for easy cooking and even easier clean-up! I always make 2 cup of this recipe because the leftovers are lifesavers. I usually have this with a huge salad while my kids eat it on its own, but it’s a perfect healthy meal either way.
