Gluten Free Dairy Free Chicken and Rice


This is truly a one dish dinner.  It has vegetables, rice and meat which makes it a very filling dinner.  We eat chicken and rice often, but this was a nice variation from the traditional creamy chicken and rice dishes.

    Do you have a name brand or idea where I can look for the chorizo? I live in Southern Arizona so we have lots of Mexican style chorizo-not the choppable Spanish style chorizo. Also, the closest Whole Foods t Trader Joes is 1.5-2 hours away. Thanks

      I use the Boar’s Head brand, which is carried in a local supermarket. Hans All Natural Sausages are also fine. If you are unable to locate Chorizo, any type of smoked sausage would be a good substitute.
