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.
