Easy and Delicious

The next series of posts are a backlog of recipes I've made over the past few weeks. They are all quite yummy and more importantly, VERY easy! Some can be made the night before, while others can be thrown together to cook pretty quickly as long as you have the ingredients on hand. Healthy(ish), simple and delicious. #Winning! 

Jaime's Chicken and Rice
1 lb. boneless chicken breast cubed
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped garlic clove
1 finely chopped bell pepper
4 medium bay leaves
Parsley flakes
1/3 cup olive oil
1 - 6oz can tomato paste
2 - cans chicken (or vegetable) broth
1 cup long grain rice
salt & pepper to taste

Saute chicken, onion, garlic & bell pepper in olive oil until golden brown.

Add in the tomato paste, bay leaves & parsley and bring to a boil. Pour in 2 cans of broth and again bring to a boil.

Stir in the rice and cover. Let it simmer and stir occasionally to make sure all the rice is submerged. When most of the liquid is absorbed, remove from heat. Keep covered for about an hour, serve & enjoy!
