Keep it Cheesy
Trying new things can be fun when you’ve got lots of time on your hands. But, after a long day of school, work or never-ending errands, complicated cooking that’s unfamiliar isn’t usually in the cards. That’s when the tried and true classics are the best way to go! Our quick and simple Cheesy Chicken and Rice is always a delicious option for those long and hectic days.
This type of recipe isn’t just quick and simple; it’s also easy to modify to suit different palates. If broccoli isn’t your favourite veggie, or you’d like to add some variety, try substituting it with one you prefer, such as cauliflower, spinach, red pepper or asparagus. Not enough cheese for your liking, as is? Add another half cup and make it extra cheesy, or mix in a dollop of sour cream for added creaminess. Try this dish in different ways to discover which one you, and your family, love the best!
Do You Need to Cook Rice Before Putting it in a Casserole?
You may be surprised to learn that you don’t need to cook your rice before putting it in a casserole. If you are cooking with Minute Rice®, you’ll want to add some boiling water to the casserole while it cooks in the oven.

Making cheeseburgers has never been so easy! Start by sautéing some onion and minced beef until totally cooked through. Drain off any excess fat and add some tomato ketchup, mustard and water. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir in some Minute Rice® Instant White Rice and cheddar cheese. Let the rice sit in a covered pan until the rice has absorbed the liquid.
