Coconut Sticky Rice with Chicken #LoveEveryMinute

Do you find it easy to whip up quick, healthy meals?  Or are you like me & don’t have a creative bone in your body when it comes to cooking?  With 3 active kids and a husband that usually gets home at 6ish, I am usually panicking because I don’t know what to fix or I forgot to pick up an ingredient at the store. Having something that is quick & easy is key!

I love using Minute Rice as a base for meals.  In just 5 minutes, you can have great tasting & fluffy rice with Minute® White Rice.  If you prefer a more nutty, rich flavor, you can use Minute 100% Whole Grain Brown Rice.  This rice has the same nutritional values as regular long cooking rice but takes just 10 minutes to cook!

I found a recipe on Minute Rice’s site that seemed very easy and that caught my eye.  Using rotisserie chicken & Minute Rice helped me to get dinner ready really quickly.  Having Minute Rice in my pantry saves a lot of time, as does buying rotisserie chicken from the store.  They are delicious and save me a lot of time.
