I‘ve never made any kind of Chinese food, so I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this and it came out PERFECT! I initially had found a recipe in an old 80’s back issue of Reader’s Digest (it too was a Minute Rice™ recipe), but naturally, I forgot to bring it with me when I went grocery shopping. So, I did the next best thing and looked on the back of the Minute Rice™ box at the grocery store and used it as a grocery list. Sure enough, there it was: Sweet & Sour Chicken.

First, I’ll give you the recipe (which I thought was kinda vague to begin with), then tell you how I went about executing it:


1 Tbsp. oil
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 bag (16 oz.) frozen stir-fry vegetables
1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks in juice, undrained
1 can (10.5 oz.) low sodium chicken broth
2 cups Minute White Rice™, uncooked
1/2 cup sweet ‘n sour sauce

1. HEAT oil in large skillet on medium-high. Add chicken; cook and stir 5 min. or until cooked through.
2. ADD vegetables and pineapple with juice; mix well. Stir in chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
3. STIR in rice; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 min. or until almost all of the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in sweet ‘n sour sauce.

Makes 5 servings. Continue reading
