Chicken and Rice

The secret that sets this super-easy chicken and rice dish apart is the homemade cream of chicken soup that I shared yesterday.  Don’t let the word homemade scare you.  The creamy sauce is fast and uses very basic ingredients.  I made this meal today for lunch with brown rice and you couldn’t tell the healthier rice was included.  The flavor was incredible!

A video, plus the ingredients and instructions on a printable recipe card are below but here’s the basic idea ->

Quickly prepare yesterday’s cream of chicken soup in a skillet.  In the same skillet add cooked chicken cubes, cooked rice, and a Tablespoon of butter.  Stir.  Optional:  Add cooked broccoli, carrots, or green peas if desired.  Add warm broth if it’s too thick.  Garnish with fresh green onions if possible.  Easy Peasy!

      We have to pace ourselves with the rice – when it’s chicken and rice especially, we would eat the whole pot if we didn’t stop ourselves. 😉
