Are you looking for an easy, quick and amazingly tasty home cooked meal that can be ready in less than 20 minutes? Of course, we all are! And in my house the time the kids say “we are hungry” to the time they are revolting to eat can seem moments apart. That is why I am excited to share a simple but delicious meal that leaves everyone feeling full, thanking mom, and enjoying the leftovers the next day.
Do you love chicken? Do you love rice? How about this very tasty take on the chicken and rice meal and I am here to show you two ways you can enjoy it!

About Knorr Sides
Wondering what we used for our rice? Plain rice can boring and you have to add so much to it to make it work. Plus it generally takes my rice cooker 55 minutes to make rice. You read that right…55 minutes! But with Knorr you can be done with a fraction of that time, costs about $1 and already includes the perfect amount of seasoning to compliment your dinner or side dish.
