Menu Plan for Winter II: Week 9, Wednesday

Creamy Chicken and Carrots
Basmati Rice

Cooking time: 25 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

        I was on a carrot kick this week, as I bought a large bag because of the stew. And this was easy.  In fact, I'm feeling guilty because it was so easy....  This is meant to use up the last of the yogurt; if you don't have any you could substitute milk for half of the chicken stock, and/or add one more tsp mustard.

Total time: 25 minutes
    Another skillet dinner: cook the chicken and carrots together and serve over rice. And, it's yogurt, not cream, for a healthier finish.
