I have fallen in love with my go-to lunch…Fiesta Chicken and Rice. I am telling y’all it is the easiest lunch under the sun. And the best part? It is easy, cheap, shelf stable, HEALTHY, and yummy!
Fiesta Chicken and Rice
- one bag of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice–Jasmine
- one can of Swanson’s White Chicken Breast in Water (pop top can)
- Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning Blend (All of the blends are great)
- Salt (if needed for flavor…some people just can not abide salt free meals)
Cook the rice per the package instructions. This takes 90 seconds or 1 min in a lower wattage microwave. Be careful it will be very hot and steamy. If you are in a jam you can mix this up right in the Uncle Ben’s bag, or you can do what I do and dump all the steaming rice into a bowl.
Drain the chicken and mix with rice, 1-2 teaspoons of Mrs Dash, and salt if you need it.
That’s it…the whole thing happens in less than 2 mins! You can eat all of it or if you want to use it as a side dish divide it in half.
