Skillet Greek Chicken with Rice and Vegetables



This Skillet Greek Chicken with Rice and Vegetables is Quick, Easy, and Delicious! This meal is made in a skillet and is simple and fresh. I use boneless skinless chicken thighs but you can use chicken breast if you prefer. This meal is also very inexpensive and can feed a family of 4 to 6, depending on your portions. I hope you try this and let me know how it turns out. It's Thyme to Cook!
