Do you guys struggle with what to make for lunch? I do! Leftovers are always in our fridge, but most of the time, I’m not feeling like eating the same thing for lunch that we just had for dinner the night before. Sound familiar?
If you’re not a meal prepper, no worries, this rice bowl comes together in about 20 minutes (even less if you’ve chopped things ahead of time), so you can easily make it and enjoy it in half an hour.
Usually, rice takes a while to cook (sometimes even longer than the whole cook time for this meal!), which is why on a busy weeknight, I usually forgo rice at all.
That’s all changed now! Minute® Ready to Serve Family Bowls are SO convenient! They contain no preservatives, are gluten free, and also come in a 100% brown rice variety. I love how easy they are to make… just remove the film, and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes. Seriously simple, which is exactly what busy families need!
Rice bowls are such a fun idea for a weeknight dinner (or lunch!), because each family member can choose what they want in their bowl.
I mentioned how quickly this meal comes together, but the other part I love is that cleanup is a breeze! Since the Minute family bowls cook in their own container, the only dish you really need to wash is the skillet where you cook your chicken. Isn’t that the best?!
Plus, you can easily prep some of this meal ahead of time, which means it will take 10 minutes to cook this meal!
Prep Ahead Tips:
Slice up cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and olives ahead of time, and keep refrigerated in airtight containers (I like to use a separate container for each veggie type, so they don’t get mushy)
Make the marinade/dressing ahead of time and keep chicken marinating (with reserved dressing in an airtight container)
If making your own hummus (this one is my favorite!), make it ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator
The next crazy weeknight, instead of reaching for the takeout menus, whip up this Greek Chicken Rice Bowl instead…. it’s wholesome, hearty, plus, it’s EASY thanks to Minute Ready to Serve Family Bowls!
