Simple ingredients all cooked together in one skillet to create a quick and easy dinner. A hearty, delicious, all-in-one meal for a busy weeknight.
We headed up into the hills to the Christmas tree farm on Sunday and ambitiously chose a great, big 12 footer which is now proudly sitting in front of our windows in the living room – sadly, without one measly decoration hanging anywhere on it. There’s just not enough time on the weekends to get all the holiday tasks out of the way so tonight after a simple dinner we’ll pop open a bottle of wine, get the Christmas music going, and decorate our humongous tree. I can’t wait to see all those twinkling lights! Whether it’s decorating, gift wrapping, shopping, or school events, it’s always one thing or another that makes these shorter December days way too long to worry about pulling together a complicated meal.
I shared this tasty one-pot meal idea on eHow before Thanksgiving and decided it was the perfect time to tell you all about it. With all the hustling and bustling that will be going on for the remaining weeks of December, quick and easy meal ideas are absolutely in order.
This cheesy chicken and rice skillet with corn, bell pepper, and black beans is a true family pleaser. Serve it in bowls with lots of great garnishments like avocado, chopped tomato, sour cream, and salsa and the next day you can wrap the leftovers in tortillas for lunch. It’s on the table in about 30 minutes, give or take and cleanup is a breeze.
