Thoughts
This was really good. We don’t like cilantro so I didn’t add it. It was quick and easy to make and I only used one skillet, a spoon, a measuring cup and a measuring spoon. I bought chopped onions in the vegetable section (I recently started doing this because it saves time and I have chopped onions in my fridge for whenever I need them)

I will definitely make this again.

  2. Sounds and looks great.

  3. Looks good and one skillet meals are so easy. thanks for sharing

  4. Love something quick and easy for midweek meals! This looks both!

    Thanks for linking up with Weekend Cooking.

  5. I think I may may this tonight! I have cooked rice leftover and usually I make fried rice but this would be a nice change.

  6. Looks and sounds delicious. I can take cilantro in small amounts, but my husband loves it in everything! He would like this better with hamburger, but would eat it with the chicken if that’s what was put in front of him. 🙂

    • LOL! My son doesn’t like chicken very much but he eats whatever I make. He did say that the next time I make it, to try it with hamburger!

  7. I like these types of meals but the fam does not. Boo.
