You're going to love this recipe, because you don't even need to fire up the grill. All you need is a few ingredients and a large frying pan. Rain or shine, this barbecue dinner will put a smile on your face.

The main ingredients in this dish are chicken breasts, rice, corn on the cob and barbecue sauce.

Make sure you wash your hands before beginning.

In a large frying pan, combine one and a half cups of water, one cup of uncooked rice, three quarter cups of your favorite barbecue sauce, and four frozen packaged chicken half breasts. Bring all to a boil.

Cover the pan and turn down the heat to a simmer. Simmer rice and chicken for twenty-five minutes. Add in six frozen half ears of corn on the cob, then cook for another fifteen to twenty minutes until the chicken juices run clear. You can also use a meat thermometer, and cook until chicken reaches 170 degrees.

Spoon one fourth cup of barbecue sauce over the cooked chicken. Remove pan from heat and let it sit for at least five minutes, until the liquid is absorbed.

Dish up the meal on plates and serve with homemade cornbread.

Makes four servings.
