Chicken Rice

April 11, 2012

When Mr Plain and I first lived together, we dined completely differently than we do know.  Obviously, we needed alot less food and grocery shopping was stress-free.  But, one of Mr Plain's favorite things to eat was Chicken Flavored Rice a Roni.  It was tasty and simple, but, darn! It is chocked full of sodium.  Now, in moderation, I guess that wouldn't be too much of a problem.  But, he also discovered a few years ago, he has very high blood pressure. So,  too much sodium is a big no-no around here.
This rice blend mix helps us out.  He still get some chicken-flavored rice and it has alot less sodium.  It also, tastes much better than a box of Rice a Roni.

  1. I am confused that the chicken seasoning mixture amounts are so small, and then in the recipe, it calls for 1/4 cup of it?

    1. If you add of the dry mix ingredients together, it adds up to almost 3/4 cup. Good for 2-3 servings of rice. You can use more or less, but, 1/4 cup is a good approx amount. Hope that helps :)

    3. I made it today to eat along with a chicken/sundried tomato/feta/pesto dish and it was fantastic. I didn't have powdered bouillon, but used chicken Better than Bouillon in the water and guessed on the rest.
