I am always searching for fast and easy recipes for dinner. I enjoy cooking, but I don't always have time to prepare a meal that takes hours to cook.
I recently accidentally purchased the Knorr chicken flavored broccoli and rice packet instead of the chicken flavored broccoli and pasta packet. Because I hate to waste food, I decided to play around with the rice packet to see if I could create a quick meal.
As with any premixed packet of food, the ingredients are not fresh and it is only chicken flavored. There is a small amount of broccoli in the packet, but the vegetable itself tastes good. As it is, it would make a delicious lunch or side. However, after adding chicken, it becomes suitable to serve as an entree.
I made it for lunch the first time, but have served it several times since
as our evening meal. It only takes about 15 minutes to throw together
and cook. It is the perfect warm meal at the end of a hard day.
Plus, it is actually very tasty!
Easy Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Recipe
Swanson canned chicken is a fast way to add cooked chicken to any
recipe. It is packed in water and has no artificial flavors or msg, but I still prefer to drain and rinse the chicken before adding it.
