This creamy Chicken and Mushroom Wild Rice Bowl is a quick lunch solution for a busy day at work!
We talk a lot about dinner solutions for getting the family fed after a long day but to make it to the end of the day you’ve got to have a good lunch. I don’t know about you but in the morning I hit the snooze button 2 or 3 times and then stumble through my morning routine before dashing out the door, usually 15 minutes late. Sometimes I manage to fit making lunch in there but more often than not I leave the house empty-handed. When Minute® sent us some of their Minute® Ready to Serve Rice to try out I was so excited because, let me tell you, these things make lunch at work so much easier!
Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is a portable solution for a quick lunch because you can eat it on-the-go, straight from the cup. All you have to do is pop it in the microwave for 60 seconds and it is fully cooked and ready to eat. No adding water! While the rice is great on it’s own to make it a meal you can add any of your favorite ingredients. We’ve shared Melinda’s quick recipe for a cheesy ham and broccoli rice bowl with you, but this time I picked the ingredients. My mom’s wild rice casserole recipe has always been one of my favorites so I chopped up some leftover chicken (you can also use turkey), added cream of mushroom soup, and some extra mushrooms, because I love them so much , and heated everything up together. It has the same flavors as mom’s recipe and it takes me less than 5 minutes to make!
So now in the morning I don’t have to worry about making my lunch. The Minute® Ready to Serve Rice can be kept in my drawer at work so I’m always stocked up. All I have to do is reach in the fridge and grab a plastic container with some diced up chicken and mushroom sauce, or whatever ingredients I have on hand that day, and head to work. I get a nice hot meal, and bonus, each cup is one serving so it makes portion control simple. Some of us need all the help we can get!
