Lemon Chicken with Vegetable Rice

Lemon Chicken with Vegetable Rice is one of my favourite meals, it is so delicious that I could probably eat a lot more of it than I should. There is also another reason that it is one of my favourites to enjoy for dinner is that I do not have to cook! This is my boyfriends speciality so I cannot take credit for this one, but he was kind enough to let me share it on my blog! It is a really delicious meal and the lemon gives the chicken that extra zesty kick and here is his recipe:
