This Baked Chicken & Rice recipe is not only easy and perfect for a quick weeknight meal, it is also incredibly affordable and hard to mess up which are both major wins for this busy mom! 

The best part is using the boxed Rice-a-Roni to keep it simple and kid-free. You could also easily make it with some vegetables on the side or hide them in there. 

I would love to hear how you like this one because it is definitely on repeat in my home and a crowd pleaser for my picky eater.
