Since Jeff and I started dating 8 years ago, I quickly learned that the key to his heart was through his stomach! That little fact really encouraged me to learn more about cooking in the kitchen and trying to make interesting meals he would enjoy.
I used to try to make elaborate meals for us a few times a week and we loved it.
Then I had babies. Three in four years, to be exact. I’m sure you can imagine just how much my time in the kitchen changed.
I just don’t have the time anymore to invest in those elaborate meals. I’m always looking for quick ideas now.
However, I’m not willing to compromise on flavor and good food!
That’s why I was so excited when I saw Minute® Ready to Serve Rice on the shelf of my grocery store! I knew I could whip up one of my favorite meals in no time with this rice!
I grabbed a rotisserie chicken from my grocery store and some vegetables for roasting. The rotisserie chicken is my favorite healthy convenient food! For just about $6, I can make a great meal out of it and maybe even have some for a salad at lunch the next day.
My roasted vegetables took the longest but all I did was cut them up, cover them all in olive oil, and then put them in the oven on a baking pan for about 30 minutes at 475 degrees.
Just as they were finishing up, I put these in the microwave for 60 seconds.
Jeff and I both love to eat the drumstick from the rotisserie chicken, but that’s really about it, unless the chicken is mixed in with something.
So, that’s exactly what I did. I cut the rest of the meat off and chopped it up, mixing it in with the rice.
I flavored with season salt and pepper, and that was IT!
It was delicious and Jeff even told me afterwards how much he liked having the chicken mixed in with the rice. Who would have thought it could make such a big difference!
This is a meal we’ll be having again and again. The best thing is even our kids like it and any meal I can quickly make for my whole family to enjoy makes this mamma happy!
