Hello, my friends!! Today was a flippin cold in Texas yo! On this 5th day of my social media challenge, Monday December 1st, I am thankful for #Rotisserie Chickens. I use them to make chicken and rice for my family on a night when I need a break!!
Today was a tough day! It started out pretty typical at 6:30 this morning, but when the little guy landed sick at school, mommy had to rescue him and was forced to take him home and cuddle…darn the luck. Anyway, by the time his daddy was headed home, I was starving!! Frozen pizza, pot pies, hot pockets, sandwiches…etc. Nothing sounded good. No meet thawing so I needed something quick and easy…
I decided I wanted to make the Chicken and Rice dish my kids love so much (and I love because it is so easy!) So I called the Mister and asked him to pick up a few things. When he got home I had gotten the little man sleepy enough I was able to slip away for about 20 minutes to whip up dinner. Literally. Less than 20 and I had a full meal on the table. Enough for a family of 5 and leftovers for lunch tomorrow!!
With my new challenge, I wake up every morning, wondering what I will be thankful for that day. I had a couple of ideas for today. However, when I started deboning that chicken – I knew exactly what I am thankful for today. Check out the recipe below and if you have ANY questions you can use any of the links below to touch base.
Cat’s Easy Peasy Chicken n Rice (you pick the theme/flavor!)
– 2 packs of Knorr Rice (Any flavor – we chose Cheddar Broccoli today)
– 1 #Rotisserie Chicken (Albertsons are $1 less than Walmart and about 20% bigger – and taste superb!)
Follow directions on rice for stovetop or microwave (microwave is easy – throw it all in a microwave safe bowl for 12 minutes – perfection.) While rice is cooking – take skin off of chicken and debone. Add chicken to cooked rice, add a little milk or water (2-3 tablespoons) and pop back in microwave for about a minute. Whip up a few sides and Walla! Dinner is served. 🙂 Thank you #Albertsons for making my life easier!!
