EWD= Easy Weeknight Dinners

I'm all about easy & delicious dinners on weeknights, how about you?

This is a recent find that I discovered at the frugal living board that I frequent. Everyone here in this house loved it and the next day at work everyone wanted to steal my lunch.

I bring you...


Yeah, I know, it's a bit yellow-y. But, it's pretty tasty, I tell you.
And, easy. Did I mention that too??

Here's just how easy...

Chicken Paella

Two packages- yellow rice mix {Vigo brand or the like}
2-3 cups of cooked chicken {chopped or shredded}
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper

1- Follow the directions in the back of the package of yellow rice.
2- When adding the rice to the water, add the onion and bell peppers, too.
3- Mix in the cooked chicken near the end of the cooking time to warm up the chicken.
4- Plate, serve with crusty bread and enjoy!

See the bits of chicken in there? Mmmmm...

There are some days I'm all about, semi-homemade-style meals, and this one fits the bill. =)
