Our family is so busy some nights, we don’t get home until right before dinner should be on the table. We have ballet class, sports practice and play dates, besides errands! When we get home from these, we need meals that are fast, easy and healthy! I was so happy to find Minute® Ready To Serve Rice. It allows you to make great meals in just a few minutes.
Here is a really fast dinner I whipped up in under 15 minutes and it only takes a few ingredients. I make it just about every month because it is such a family favorite! My husband and I really like that there are healthy vegetables and the protein that chicken provides. My kids love the delicious rice and that they get to cover everything in the peanut butter sauce that they love! And no more waiting forever for regular rice to cook. Even with multiple servings, this rice was done and perfectly cooked in just minutes. One serving one takes 60 seconds!
- 1 lb of chicken breast cut into strips about 1″ by 3″ so they cook really fast!
- Frozen stir fry vegetables (about 8-12 ounces)
- 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 Cup sweet red chili sauce
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- Minute Ready to Serve Rice (2 packages)
- Peanuts (optional)
- Olive oil
Cook chicken in olive oil in a large wok until cooked through. Add frozen vegetables and continue to cook until hot.
While the chicken and vegetables are cooking, put a half cup of peanut butter in a microwave safe dish along with 3/4 water. Microwave on high in 30 second increments for about 1 1/2-2 minutes, stirring with a whisk each time. When thoroughly combined start rice as per directions in the microwave.
Add the sweet red chili sauce and the soy sauce to the peanut sauce and continue to whisk until smooth.
Sprinkle with peanuts and serve!
