One-Pot Italian Dressing Chicken Wild Rice with Pepper and Onion....What inspired me to make this recipe?  Well, after making bell pepper pepperoni pasta salad, I have this bottle of Italian salad dressing staring at me.  I asked myself, "Hmmm....what should I do with it?"  You may have known my mantra, "Seeing my food in the trash can is the last thing I want to see."

So, after a while, I was thinking, "Hey!  How about chicken and rice?  That's it.  That would be a perfect recipe to use it up.  Yes!!!"
