A few of my favorite things are garlic, chicken, rice, and *bowls*. And by bowls, I don’t mean the physical dinnerware. I mean the type of meal where you throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl and call it a day. Actually, it is my favorite type of meal. I find that if you serve everything separately, it’s just kind of blah. So in our house, we lean towards *bowls*. SO in honor of my love for bowls, I decided to take some of my other favorites, throw them together and call it dinner. AND Garlic Chicken and Wild Rice bowls are born.

It starts with sliced garlic. Don’t you just LOVE garlic? I’m always in the mindset of the more garlic the better. So feel free to go heavy with it in this dish 🙂 I mean it is GARLIC chicken after all. Seriously though, if you need an easy, well rounded dish… THIS IS IT. Garlic + wine + rice? Do I need to say more.
