The Shady Porch: Chicken Provolone with Wild Rice

8.31.2011

Chicken Provolone with Wild Rice

Some years ago, Bob Evans restaurants had a Chicken Monterey dish on their menu that we loved. Once they removed the item from their menu, we started fixing our own version. Over time it has changed some, but only for the better! We use Provolone cheese rather than the Monterey Jack most of the time. We prepared the dish tonight as a farewell to the zucchini/squash harvest for the year. 


The dish, as we serve it, is a bed of wild rice with a chicken breast covered in sauteed veggies with a slice of provolone cheese on top. Garnish with diced tomatoes and chopped scallions, as desired.

We used Uncle Ben's Rice*. We've used various flavors - Brown & Wild, Roasted Garlic, and Herb Roasted Chicken are the usual varieties we buy. We usually buy the Original, BUT the new Ready Rice that only takes 90 seconds in the microwave is equally good!  *(no compensation rec'd)  




Ingredient List -  
chicken breasts  - boneless, skinless
a box of wild rice
saute veggies (zucchini, squash, white onion), 
scallions - diced
tomato  - diced
Monterey Jack or Provolone cheese 


To prepare the dish-
1.  Cook the boneless, skinless chicken breast(s) using your desired method. I usually bake ours.
2.  Saute your veggies. We usually saute zucchini and squash coupled with a white onion.
I'm sure your favorite saute veggies would work as well.
3.  Cook the rice as directed.
4.  Chop scallions and tomatoes for garnish.
5.  Once the chicken has cooked, place a slice of provolone cheese over it and allow it to melt.

For serving, I like to make mine into a stir-fry style because I like the provolone cheese to melt down over the rice and veggies, so I diced my chicken as opposed to the hubby who likes his as pictured.

Bottom line...it tastes great and it is quick and easy!
