If you’re in a time crunch, but you want to save a little cash by eating dinner in, then this is a great go to recipe. Prep time is only about 5 minutes, and bake time is 25, so in only 30 minutes you’ll have a hot meal on the table.
All you need is a bag of yellow rice (we use the 10 oz. Vigo brand)
one chicken breast
2 1/2 cups of water
2 TBSP of butter
9×13 in. glass dish
*Preheat your oven to 460 degrees
*Empty your bag of rice into the 9×13 glass dish, and spread evenly.
*Slowly add 2 1/2 cups of water, making sure to cover all the rice.
*Place 2 TBSP of butter anywhere in the dish.
*I guesstimate, and place 4 small dollops randomly in thepan.
*Lastly, pound your chicken flat and cut into even strips.
*Then cut into 1/2 inch or 1 inch cubes and distribute throughout your pan.
That’s it! Cover your dish with aluminum foil, and place in a 460 degree oven for 25 minutes.
Your rice and chicken will be perfectly cooked. Add in a side salad, or some garlic bread, and you have a full meal in only 30 minutes.
This recipe is enough to feed my family of 4, and we still usually have a little left over. You can adjust the recipe as needed, in order to accommodate how many people you are intending to feed.
