Recipe | "Skillet Cheesy Chicken and Veggie "Rice" - A Gluten Free Meal" by Sue Ready

Make Healthy Choices in the New Year

Cook's Notes: Riced veggies are an innovative product (easy to find in frozen section) low in calories, healthy and a gluten-free side dish. The recipe comes from I made several adaptations that I included in the recipe below. With a great taste you won't even realize you are already eating healthy. A serving comes in under 300 calories but if you choose to use a rotisserie chicken that calorie count might change. Recipe serves four.
