Skillet Chicken with Rice


Updated June 04, 2009

Chicken is a safe choice for most heartburn sufferers because, without the skin, it contains significantly less fat than most other varieties of meats. This is because fat is often a heartburn trigger. This recipe allows you to enjoy skillet-prepared chicken, instead of baked, but it also contains low-fat or fat-free ingredients.
