Instant Pot Rice & Chicken
Your Instant Pot, pressure cooker, or slow cooker can be a lifesaver when your schedule makes you feel stressed. Start with the sauté function using chicken breasts or boneless thighs and veggies. Then, add water or broth, rice and seasonings and set to the manufacturer’s instructions, and you’re on your way.
Cheesy Rice & Chicken
One way to give your dinner a tasty touch is with cheese! While you can always sprinkle your favourite shredded cheese on top of chicken and rice, why try mixing cream cheese into your freshly cooked rice for a creamy touch? Or, broil Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs on your oven-baked dish for a fantastic finish.
