We are so blinded by how much we love the combination of tender chicken and saucy pasta, that we rarely combine chicken and rice. I have been using Knorr Rice Sides for years, yet only as a side dish. Though scrumptious, I never though to combine the flavorful rice with protein and veggies for a quick all-in-one weeknight dinner. And it’s all made easily in one pan!

There’s nothing better than a bowl full of comfort in the colder months, and this dish delivers. Hot, creamy rice with mozzarella mixed right in, topped with sweet tomatoes and fresh basil. Looks like summer on a plate, but warms your belly with every bite!

Don’t you just want to pour a glass of crisp white wine and sit down to this big bowl? It’s delicious with a big green salad, and perfect for a hearty, healthy dinner anytime of year. We love this savory, scrumptious one-skillet meal full of homemade goodness. And it’s made even more delicious by cooking and sharing it with someone special. Sharing is caring, y’all.

And that’s why I’d love to share a great giveaway with you today!
