Chicken Rice with Cheese

*Dinner Tonight*

So allergy season is already kicking my butt. 🤧 I have felt awful today and not exactly in the mood to cook anything.

But seeing as I’m Mom, I’m still responsible for making sure my crew gets fed. I decided to go with something simple enough to make a whole meal in the microwave.

This is what I came up with…

and it was a HIT! 🤩

I used:

3 packs of Chicken Rice

3 tablespoons butter

6 1/2 cups of water

Added to a casserole dish and cooked uncovered for about 16 mins (stirring midway).

When it was done I stirred the can of chicken in with the hot rice, topped with the sharp cheddar cheese, and covered with the lid.

I also steamed a bag of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots to go with it.

COST: @ $5

I will Absolutely remember this recipe the next time I’m not feeling good because it was easier than loading everyone up (and cheaper) than going to get fast food. 😉
