Place 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter in microwave safe casserole dish (I use the Pampered Chef Rockcrok).
Heat over medium heat 3-5 minutes or until melted, stirring to cover surface of pan.
Add onion, garlic, and rice to pan.
Cook, uncovered, 3-4 minutes or until rice is lightly toasted, stirring frequently.
Remove Pan from heat.
Stir stock and pepper into rice.
Microwave, covered, on HIGH 15-17 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Remove Pan from microwave; stir in Parmesan, remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter, chicken (or prawns), spinach and sun-dried tomatoes.
Let stand 5 minutes. Enjoy!
