Rice Pilaf Chicken & Cashews Recipe

Rice Pilaf Chicken & Chashews Recipe

This recipe was invented on one of those days that I didn't want to go to the store, so I opened up the cabinets and this is what I had to work with. Turned out great and still fix it quite often.

Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts
Rice A Roni Rice Pilaf

Rinse and cut chicken into bite size pieces - brown in a skillet with olive oil
Prepare Rice A Roni according to package directions in an electric skillet
**Use one box of Rice A Roni for 1 or 2 chicken breasts; 2 boxes of Rice A Roni with package of 3 or 4 chicken breasts
After rice vermicilli is browned and you add the water to the rice add the chicken as well and finish cooking the rice
When rice and chicken are about halfway done, add cashews and finish cooking - this allows the cashews to soften slightly and absorb some of the rice/chicken flavor
