2 Pounds of Barbecue Chicken

Today was weigh-in day for our little weight loss group. Two pounds, baby! That brings my total to nine pounds! To motivate myself, I have picked out my twenty pound goal - a dress from Shabby Apple.

I can't make up my mind. It will probably be which ever one is on sale. I love wearing dresses, but it is difficult to find dresses that are flattering (and modest) without making me look like the frumpy schoolmarm that I am.

Here's a family-friendly dinner that's easy to make in one pan. It simmers quietly giving you time to putter around the kitchen doing other things.
Barbecue Chicken and Rice
1 1/2 lb. chicken (I used boneless, skinless tenders)
2 Tb. oil (I used spray)

1 1/4 c. barbecue sauce

3/4 c. water
1 1/2 c. minute rice (I used Minute brown rice)

Green and red peppers, as desired

Brown chicken in oil. Stir in sauce and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for twenty minutes. Stir in rice. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. (Apparently, you need to simmer the brown rice for a little longer - maybe 10 minutes. It had a little crunch to it.)
7 ww points
