Easy Cheesy Chicken and Rice

Submitted by: KELLY123505

Introduction

Super easy to make for when you need something simple and fast, One dish,less than 400 cals and very filling. The only down side is this dish contains a lot of sodium. In my personal experience I can get away with the sodium every now and then, but I know not all diets allow that, so you could always omit the Steamfesh bags and replace with regular rice and veggies to solve this issue, just more prep involved.
