My Weeknight Cheesy Chicken and Rice makes the perfect dinner for the whole family!

I love making quick and simple weeknight dinners.  My family goes nuts for this flavor packed one pot dinner.  Love that you won’t be making a huge mess in the kitchen with this one.  One pot dinners are my favorite!  I used a rotisserie chicken for the chicken in this recipe.  Feel free to cook your own if you desire.  Pre-chopping your veggies helps with your prep time.  Hope you enjoy!

These Chocolate Hazelnut Sweet Rolls make the perfect surprise for your family and friends.
