Quick and Delicious One-Pot Chicken & Basmati Rice Recipe

After a long day, the last thing you want to think about is what to cook for dinner, right? I hear ya!


My mother-in-law shared a recipe with me for One-Pot Chicken and Basmati Rice with Spinach. She said it was delicious and easy to make.


After a long day (with a teething baby), I needed a recipe like this! 30 minutes later, I had dinner on the table! And only one dirty pan - bonus!


And wow - it was delicious! Definitely a recipe I'll be adding to my recipe box!


Give it a try! I hope it'll make your day like it did mine :)
