Let’s talk about those busy nights when you need a f-a-s-t dinner. For those nights I like to have a meal I can put together with a few pantry staples. Pantry staples like this great microwavable Veetee rice.
One of my favorite go to meals are these Chicken Taco Bowls. Not only are they fast and easy to make they are filling.
Begin by cutting two chicken breasts into bite size pieces season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet and cook the chicken on medium high heat until it is cooked through. This should take about 10 minutes.
Once chicken is cooked through add bell pepper and onion to skillet and cook until tender.
Next, add in black beans, corn, tomatoes and chilies, and taco seasoning then stir to combine. Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
While the chicken mixture is simmering you can prepare the rice. For this recipe I’m using Veetee Dine In Long Grain Rice. It’s practical, inexpensive and fast. By fast I mean it is ready in 2 minutes.
To prepare the rice you simply peel back the film over the top and pop it in your microwave and cook on high for two minutes. Remove the package and fluff the rice with a fork.
To assemble the bowls dish the rice into bowls and then top with the chicken taco mixture. Garnish with topping of you choice. I like to add scallions and tortilla strips for crunch but the possibilities are endless.
