Zest Up Your Rice

Beat mealtime boredom with Minute® Rice. This recipe is a quick and simple way to level up your average rice skillet dinner. How? By using flavor boosters!

We’ll show you just how simple it is: Start with your favorite Italian dressing and dijon mustard to sautée the chicken. Give your dish a base of flavor, then add in the other ingredients along with water and rice for everything to cook up to fluffy perfection together.
