This one pot dish is easy enough for a busy weeknight dinner and delicious enough that the whole family will love it!
I was compensated by Minute® Rice to create this recipe. However, like always, the opinions are entirely my own. Promise 🙂
Who else is struggling with getting a healthy dinner on the table this time of year? During the holidays there aren't enough hours in the day. On top of that, I feel more exhausted than ever! I love easy, healthy, one pot meals that will be ready in no time at all. In fact, you can easily use leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken for this dish! I am all about making our crazy lives a little easier.
I love this Minute® Rice Multi-Grain Medley! I loved the textures of the different grains together and it's so versatile. I can think of at least 10 different dishes I could use it in. I better start cooking!
The beauty of this dish is that it's actually healthy. I was so excited when I heard that Minute® Rice came out with a Multi-Grain Medley (which is soooo up my alley!) It's a blend of whole grains like brown rice, Thai red rice, wild rice and quinoa! They come in portion-controlled bags (another huge bonus) and they are gluten-free. I love the way this sounds. And it only takes 10 minutes to cook. Now let's create an easy healthy dish with it!
