These Southwest Chicken and Vegetable Brown Rice Bowls are the perfect weeknight dinner for busy nights.

Southwest Chicken and Vegetable Brown Rice Bowls

Dinner can be so tricky when there’s so much going on during our busy weeknights. Between homework and the many kids activities it seems like there is no time to get dinner on the kitchen table. I am partnering with Green Giant™ this month to bring you simple weeknight dinners with added vegetables that the whole family will enjoy.

Instead of our usual brown rice bowls with just chicken and salsa, I added Green Giant™ Honey Roasted Corn Steamer for a fun twist and more vegetables. I used precooked brown rice that is microwavable as well as precooked chicken breast that I chopped. Simple and flavorful weeknight dinner that is a breeze to add to your menu plan.
