Holiday-inspired Favorite

If you’re craving the tasty blend of creamed corn with a side of roast turkey or chicken during the holiday season, no need to wait for a large gathering. This is a simple meal that can be enjoyed as a meal for one made with shredded chicken or as a quick dinner side dish to share.

To give this quick version of a classic that same creamy texture, we’ve used chicken broth, butter and Parmesan cheese with fresh, frozen or canned corn you’ve got on hand! It’s a great way to use a leftover side of corn, chicken or that little bit of broth in the fridge. And, we’ve used aromatic Ready to Serve Jasmine Rice, which heats up in just 1 minute, to give this dish a layer of hearty and tasty flavor.

With Minute® Rice it’s easy to find a quick version of any dish you enjoy, the trick is finding the right Savory Stir Ins that you can add to your favorite Ready to Serve Rice Cup. Try anything from Greek to Asian or even Southern comfort creamed corn.

Spicy Jalapeño

This dish also has a bit of added pickled jalapeño peppers for those who can enjoy a meal with a kick of heat. If that sounds like something you enjoy, you might also want to try a simple Jalapeño Popper Chicken Riceor a Mexican-inspired Street Corn Style Rice Bowl.

However, if you prefer a more mild creamed corn, feel free to omit the peppers or sub in for crunchy bell peppers.
