Light Crock Pot Fiesta Chicken & Rice Bowls are loaded with chicken, brown rice and pico de gallo that makes a healthy dish you can throw in your slow cooker for an easy and delicious meal that will be ready to serve when you get home from work! I am excited to be sharing this recipe over on my friend Julie’s blog, Julie’s Eats and Treats today. She is currently taking a nice long maternity leave after her adorable baby girl was born.
OK, so long is all relative. She is taking three months off, which most of us Americans think is very generous. Did you know that in most other countries, they typically get a minimum of six months off PAID! My German host-sister, who is a doctor, was able to take the first year of her little guy’s life off on paid leave through the state. Can you even imagine?!
Well, i doubt the American system is going to change any time soon, but if you would like to check out how poorly we rate in comparison to other countries, check out this article. I won’t be holding my breathe for a year off when I have children though, I will be, just like Julie, more than happy to have three months off.
Now that I am done complaining about the amount of time Julie gets off for maternity leave, be sure and head over to her blog to get this delicious and healthy meal that can be made in your slow cooker for an easy weeknight dinner!
