Super-Fast Chicken & Rice

  • This dish is one that I cook when I am so tired from training that there is no chance of me making anything that takes major effort.
  • I like having a few meals like this in the repertoire.
  • This dinner is not as healthy as some of my other recipes but it definitely hits the spot after a track session and, all in all, it’s not a bad option to throw together
