Tracking Pixel If you have been around here long you know that I have found a new love of cooking and baking for my family but all of my recipes must be easy, quick and family friendly. Now, the biggest challenge is finding those recipes but with the help of Minute® Rice I am always able to create something tasty. My favorite item to have on hand is Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice. Just like all Minute® Rice, the whole grain brown rice is quick and easy to prepare and is a great pantry staple. My entire family loves when I prepare a meal with rice, but especially brown rice. If you like the rich flavor of brown rice, Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice is a tasty, nutritious option, and it has similar nutritional values as regular long cooking brown rice, but is ready in just 10 minutes!!  Remember how I said I need my recipes to be easy?  This is why I use Minute® Rice!

  2. This is gorgeous. I love one pot dishes. I just tried my first one recently.
    Although my family is full of cilantro haters! Must be generic. We can still use the rest, though, and maybe substitute avocados. Or parsley?

  20. I'm a huge fan of one pot recipes. Its such a time saver. And, brown rice is very healthy compared to white. I am going to try your recipe without the chicken!

  21. I'm a sucker for a one pot meal of any type. This seems so much better than Rice A Roni though. I prefer brown rice to white rice!
