In today’s post we are going to take a look at some of our favorite dishes which can be made in no time at all with Minute® Chicken & Herb Seasoned Rice Cups. But before we begin, let’s take a look at how to actually prepare a rice cup.

How to Make Minute® Rice Cups

Cooking up a Minute® Rice cup could not be simpler. First, remove the film from your rice cup and place in the microwave. Heat the cup for 1 minute, however if you want to make two rice cups simultaneously, set the timer for 1 ½ minutes. Once your rice cup has finished heating, stir and serve it immediately. Be careful when removing your rice cup from the microwave as the steam will be very hot!

You can also make your Minute® Rice cups on the stove if you prefer. Remove the film from the cup and empty the contents onto a skillet or saucepan. Break up any clumps you see and add a tablespoon of water. Heat the rice on a low heat and continue stirring until the rice has been cooked through. Once the rice has been heated, remove from the stove and serve immediately.

Now that we know how to make our rice cups, let’s take a look at some recipes!
