Raise your hand if you love Cafe Rio! The food is sooooo good – fresh, flavorful, and colorful. Dustin and I love it more than we should. If we don’t monitor ourselves, Cafe Rio can put a major dent in our pocketbook. 

So I did my usual and looked up copycat recipes. This one from Six Sisters is excellent and really, really easy. Did I mention how easy it is? I think prep for both the chicken and rice takes me five minutes tops – I let me slow cooker and rice cooker do the heavy lifting for this one. 


The other thing I love about this is how healthy it is. It’s high protein, low fat, and all tasty. Also, see how yummy this chicken looks:
