I love when I can make a meal quickly! I am all about easy meals for busy weeknights.  It’s basically the whole theme of my blog. Using a delicious rotisserie chicken means that this dish will have so much flavor and you didn’t have to do a thing!  If you can whisk up a sauce and boil water you have all the skills that you need to make this recipe a success!

This meal is actually quite healthy! Once you pull the skin off the chicken you lose a large amount of fat. Using coleslaw mix gets you a really nice mix of veggies and since you are flash cooking them you are not losing the nutrition in the cooking process.  You are going to love how tasty and filling this is.  The rice is perfect and gives you the right amount of carbs.

You can portion this out as small or as large as you want.  I actually had a few smaller portions as a protein packed power snack.  This really held me over from lunch to a late dinner.  No sugar crash, no hangry attitude, it was great!

I hope that I have enticed you to make this super simple recipe.  I know that it is going to  become a favorite on busy weeknights for you!  Make sure you get my Tips & Tricks for the perfect rice each and every time right after the recipe!
