Enough talking, it’s time to SHOW you!  Recently, my sister joined me in the kitchen to help me prepare a Chicken and Brown Rice Skillet.  We use Alexia’s Harvest Sauté which combines fresh vegetables with sage-infused olive oil.  As a twenty-something living on her own for the first time, my sister was eager and excited to learn how to make this one-pot meal.   The complete recipe is listed below the video.

    I bought a lot of chicken over the weekend (counting on it to make lots of healthy dinners over the coming two weeks). Love this tip ~ and will look for a bag of the Alexia Harvest Saute for a super quick dinner. Love the video!!! So fun.

      Let me know what you think!! It was so ridiculously easy – great for those busy week nights. Thanks for watching the video. 😉

      Thank you so much!! I am oddly comfortable behind a video camera but I’m not sure I’ll ever enjoy watching myself or hearing my voice after the fact – haha. xoxo

    I looove your video! Both of you are so pretty!
    I will definitely be on the lookout for that Harvest Saute. We have chicken 2 to 3 times a week :) … it will be nice to add a bit of somethin’-somethin’ to it 😉

    What a great, simple meal! I’ll have to check out the Alexia frozen veggies and incorporate them into my shopping list so I can prepare quick, healthy meals like this one. Looks delicious!

    I’m wondering why the video calls for twice the amount of rice and broth as the written directions. I followed the directions and had way too much rice. Wasn’t able to watch the video until after. Next time I will use the 1 cup rice and 2 cups broth.

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      Hi Rita – First of all, please accept my apologies for the confusion on the rice. I have revised the recipe to reflect the video. Secondly, as long as you followed a 2 to 1 ratio (which it sounds like you did!) hopefully the rice was properly cooked. Please let me know if you have any other questions and again, I truly apologize for the confusion. Thank you so much for trying this recipe and please let me know if you see any other errors. :)

    I missed this post back in January! I’m doing a little meal planning this morning, trying to find some easy stuff to put together this week. I don’t know if we have those Alexia products near me (based on Katie’s comment below) so I will improvise – this sounds delicious and totally versatile, and my kids will eat it! (WIN!)
    Love the video and your sister! :)

      hahaha It was so fun making this video with her!!! She’s a hoot. Yes totally sub out with any veggies – would be great with just broccoli!! Love one pot dinners. :)
