Easy rice with dried tomatoes and mushrooms

Dinner time is usually solved with a salad or a sandwich. In my case, and with my accelerated metabolism, that kind of options are absolutely discarded. I like to have a full dinner, they used me that way since I was little.

Then I have to be creative at night. In many cases I plan the dinners from early, in other cases, like this recipe, I improvise with what I find.

The result? a "stewed rice" with mushrooms, dried tomatoes and chicken breast as main ingredients.
