Breakfast: Whole Wheat Pancakes with strawberries
Dinner: BBQ Chicken and Rice - OMG was this good!! I got the recipe from Mandy's Recipe Box and I followed her suggestion and used pinto beans instead of black beans. I also added corn to it. Gerald said, "yumm, make that again!" Joey was a little stressed out that everything was mixed together, Ella picked at it, Eddie ate it up, Eva had something different, lol.
Here's my picture of it, but it didn't do it justice.
BBQ Chicken and Rice
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
2 cups instant white rice, uncooked
1 cups Barbecue Sauce
1-1/2 cups water
1 cup canned pinto beans, drained, rinsed
1-1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
1. Cook and stir chicken in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until cooked through.
2. Stir in rice, barbecue sauce and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
3. Add beans and 1 cup of the cheese; mix lightly. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese; cover. Cook until cheese is melted.
