This is one of those recipes that came about one night because I had no real idea of what to cook. I didn't have much in the fridge, but I did have this packet of Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix. Now why I had the Italian dressing is a mystery as I don't really care for it.

So I tossed it in a skillet with some olive oil and there it was. Over the years, I have received many compliments on this dish.

I certainly think this is something absolutely anyone can cook.

Happy cooking.

How to Make Easy Italian Flavored Chicken and Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces.
    My chicken has usually come from the freezer. I prefer to partially thaw it in the microwave oven. This way it is easier to cut up and you run less chance of the chicken dring out during cooking.
  2. Pour olive oil and Good Seasons Italian drressing mix into medium sized skillet.
  3. Add chicken and saute` just until no longer pink, making sure you have coated all pieces with oil and seasoning.
  4. While chicken is cooking, cut onions into good sized pieces. No need to spend a lot of time chopping onions.
  5. Add onion, separating the pieces as you go, and cook just a few minutes more to get the onions lightly cooked. I prefer my onions al dente`. If you like them cooked to a softer texture, add them earlier in the cooking process.
  6. Serve over rice with your favorite vegetable.
