Chickeny Rice with Almonds and Cranberries is a delicious mix to have on hand.
Chickeny Rice with Almonds and Cranberries is one of several rice mixes that I make. I love to have a pile of various mixes ready to go when I need them. They are cheaper and much healthier–yummier too–than store bought processed mixes. It really does not take much time at all to make up several of these at the same time and then be ready to go for quite a while. I take about an hour every 6 months or so and make several mixes of different rice blends and then I am good to go! During my rice mix hour, I also make Indian Rice with Cashews and Raisins, Beefy Rice and Mushrooms Mix, Tex-Mex Rice Mix and Curried Rice. That gives us a good supply and variety.
All you need to do is add a bag of this to water in a saucepan, let it simmer 15-18 minutes, add the almonds and craisins and it is ready! It can also be measured out at cooking time, of course; whatever works for you. I have a measurement of bouillon on the recipe but take note that all bouillon is not the same. Read your jar and add what you will need for 4 cups of water.
You can also make it with brown rice. The instructions will be a little different; 5 cups of water and 50 minutes of cooking time.
I got this recipe from the book, “Meals in Jars”. You can get it here.
