Easy One-Pot Chicken & Rice and Gooseberry Patch Giveaway

During my last few days of summer break, I worked through the "Quick and Easy" section of the new Gooseberry Patch cookbook 101 Stovetop Suppers.  I wanted to have some options when I just didn't have enough time to prepare the slow cooker  or have a ready casserole to throw in the oven. I need to have a few go-to recipes to keep me from the drive-thru while giving my kids a hot, quick meal.  This cookbook did not disappoint.  My family enjoyed the Sloppy Cowboys, Inside-Out Stuffed Pepper, Vegetable Quesadillas, and this Easy One-Pot Chicken & Rice. And, those recipes were only some in the "Quick and Easy" section; I didn't even work through the "Slowly Simmered" or "Serves a Crowd" sections yet!

I loved being able to open the spiral ring book and stand it up to follow the recipe without having to reopen the book a million times.  The recipes were easy to follow and kept me from turning on the oven. Jo Ann and Vickie now have a YouTube channel too!  I used it with my girls so they could help me in the kitchen.



  • 1 T. butter
  • 2 10 oz. cans chicken, drained
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 15 oz. can mixed vegetables, partially drained
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 cups instant rice, uncooked
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup boiling water, divided
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup honey mustard

  2. Stir in broth and vegetables with remaining juice.  Heat until boiling; add seasonings.
  3. Stir in rice and 1/2 cup boiling water.  Cover and remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes, until almost all liquid has been absorbed.

  5. Stir in mustard.
