Rainy Days and Easy Dinners

Happy 4th of July everyone!

We are celebrating by staying in enjoying the sound of the rain and thunder, with the occasional flickering of the power.  Here's to time number 4.

We absolutely love married life and everyday realize that we love it just that much more.

Tonight, we think we are going to make Easy Chicken and Rice.  Below is the recipe.


Ingredients: 
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) cream of mushroom soup 
1 1/2 cups water 
1/4 teaspoon paprika 
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 
2 cups uncooked instant white rice 
2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets 
Directions: 
Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken 
and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides.  Remove 
the chicken from the skillet. 
Stir the soup, water, paprika and black pepper in the skillet and heat to 
a boil.  Stir in the rice and broccoli.  Reduce the heat to low.  Return 
the chicken to the skillet.  Sprinkle the chicken with additional paprika 
and black pepper.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is 
cooked though. 

Enjoy :)
