Italian Herb Chicken with Mediterranean Rice

Italian Herb Chicken With Mediterranean Rice

I'm huge on quick and easy dishes that still pack flavor. Standing on my feet to cook a meal for hours on end with CKD is tiring, and I'm just not able to do it anymore. On multiple occasions, I have cooked meals and wiped myself out, and then not even bothered to eat because when I was all done, I was more ready for bed than dinner.

This is a recipe for these times. I know dinner can be an overwhelming task it is for me, as I'm sure many can relate. This recipe can be changed to your liking. I kept it simple with just a few ingredients.
