Baked Chicken & Grain Pasta Medley

Baked Chicken & Grain Pasta Medley


Our family members all have a variety of meal preferences and I am always looking for a way to please them all, while ensuring the meal is healthy.

I have been able to switch my picky eaters from plain white rice to wild rice and then more recently have been able to add in couscous and split peas.

Add some baked chicken and either salad or steamed veggies to round out a healthy meal your whole family will love.

2 cups chicken or vegetable stock

1/2 cup onions, chopped

1/2 cup carrots, sliced

After the timer goes off release steam vapor, unlock and open pot and Fluff rice mixture with a fork.

For chicken, rinse and pat dry, brush with olive oil and seasoning with salt and pepper.

Bake chicken in a preheated 350-degree oven for 60 minutes (1 hour), juices should run clear, and skin should be crisp.
