Easy Chicken and Spinach Rice Dish #LoveEveryMinute

Even though I’m home all day and should have all the time in the world to plan out meals, I’m honestly not great at doing it. I often find myself looking at the clock at 4:30pm and realizing I have no idea what we’re doing for dinner. I keep saying I’m going to get better with planning but to date I haven’t. Therefore, I LOVE quick and easy recipes. If I can add healthy on to the end of that sentence it’s a total slam dunk.

One product that helps me out in a jam is Minute Rice because…well it cooks in just minutes! In a total pinch I can cook it up and just add a little butter and cheese and the kids will eat it!

The other night though I made a simple and easy Chicken and Spinach Rice dish with the help of my little chef Isabelle. 



Here is the recipe we used.

Chicken and Spinach Rice

Ingredients:
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 pound Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (cut into bit size pieces)
1 bag (10 ounces) Fresh Baby Spinach
1 ½ cups Minute White Rice (uncooked)
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
¾ cup Chicken Broth
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic (use more or less based on your taste preference)
½ Tsp Ground Pepper
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)

Directions

(1) Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and cook through (approx. 10 mins)
(2) Add spinach, garlic, rice, tomatoes, pepper, and chicken broth; mix well. 



(3) Bring ingredients to a boil.
(4) Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
(5) Finally, stir in the parmesan cheese and you have dinner!


One of the reasons I like this recipe is because you can also mix it up and add other ingredients, spices, etc based on your likes (or just what you have in the pantry!). 
 
Minute® Rice is so quick and easy to prepare and is great pantry staple. When meal time seems like a hassle, Minute® Rice is a go-to ingredient your whole family will love and allows you to have more quality time doing what you want with your loved ones.

Leftover rotisserie chicken or veggies from a meal earlier in the week? Minute® Rice can easily be paired with some of your leftover ingredients to make a quick, easy and wholesome meal your whole family will love in just a matter of minutes.

  1. Looks and sounds really tasty. I am the only one in our house that likes spinach, though, so I'd have to eat the whole thing myself. HA!
