But if you’re looking to eat healthier and save a few dollars, we’ve got the recipes to show you that delicious, home-cooked meals can be made in minutes!

You’ll love this quick, simple and incredibly tasty 20 Minute Chicken and Rice Stir-Fry. It features Minute® Instant White Rice, juicy grilled chicken and fresh veggies, all cooked to perfection in just the right amount of soy sauce.

In 4 easy steps and just 20 minutes, you can enjoy a complete and satisfying meal right from your own kitchen. You certainly deserve that home-cooked goodness after a long day.

Make it Your Way

If you’re a veggie lover, try this recipe with added water chestnuts, carrots, snow peas and garlic. For more spice, heat things up by adding spicy hot peppers or a bit of chili oil or Sriracha sauce.

You can also make this into a delicious vegetarian dish by using tofu or beans instead of the chicken. For the perfect whole-grain alternative, try making this dish with Minute® Instant Brown Rice.
