Lemon Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice

Lemon chicken and broccoli  is one of my favorite recipes to cook. It's simple to make. Plus it's healthy. I pair my lemon chicken and broccoli with the Rice a Roni Long Grain and Wild Rice. Sometimes it's easier to make a box of rice instead of seasoning your own rice. Plus I like the seasoning they use.
