Posted by: Tuddles  Mon, 31 Jan 2005, at 6:10 a.m.

1 TBS oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts-cut in strips
1 clove garlic crushed
1 1/4 cup uncooked rice
2 cans chicken broth -- (15oz each)
1 TBS lemon peel-grated
1 TBS pesto -- (1 to 2)
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 cup fresh Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, sauté chicken and garlic on oil until light brown. Stir in rice, broth, lemon peel, pesto, and pepper. Cover and simmer 20-25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.

VARIATION: Arrange fresh broccoli spears around edge of skillet about halfway through cooking time. This makes a great "meal in one" dish.
