One Skillet Mediterranean Chicken and Rice

One skillet Mediterranean chicken and rice is a classic meal the whole family will love. Traditionally, it’s made in a casserole dish. At least, that’s how my Mom and Grandma make it.

Other than that, this One Skillet Mediterranean Chicken and Rice is a traditional Mediterranean recipe for chicken and rice.
