Sunday. Today was just that; A Sun Day. And we took advantage of it. We drank coffee with sunglasses on, we walked through our woods and swung on the swing. We piled in to the pickup, and rode with the windows down to the elementary school. We live on the top of a mountain and lack a good place for our 7 year old to ride her bike, so the school tennis court is an ideal spot. While she rode her bike, my husband and I alternated pitching and hitting old t-balls, an AMAZING stress reliever by the way. For lunch we went to a local pizza spot, followed by afternoon naps. It was glorious. However, it did not allow time for me to create a full blown Sunday family meal, like I usually do. So today I’ll share with you a simple, 1 pan, delicious and balanced dinner that I have thrown together on many occasions.
Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole. Seriously Simple.
I placed the following in a baking dish:
- 6 frozen chicken tenderloins
- 10 broccoli florets (frozen would work great)
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 1/4c frozen diced onions (I always keep these on hand for quick flavor)
- 1 package of chicken rice
- 2 1/2c of water
I baked it for 1 hour at 400°f. Then when I pulled it out, it was hot and tender, I added some cheddar cheese and a little salt and pepper.
