My favorite meals during the spring and summer are skillet meals that can be cooked in under 30 minutes. These type meals don’t require much prep or cleanup.  Easy Chicken Fried Rice fits the bill and it’s a family favorite.

Easy Chicken Fried Rice

My family hits the ground running once warm weather arrives. We’re in the midst of baseball games, spur-of-the-moment trips to the beach and graduation parties. I can’t forget the end-of-the-school-year musical recitals. I always remember to take lots of photos while we’re spending time with family and making memories to cherish forever.

When it comes time for dinner, my weekly menu includes delicious meals that are easy to make and fun to eat. Easy Chicken Fried Rice is one of my husband’s favorite meals. When I cook, he cleans the kitchen and when he cooks, he cleans the kitchen. It’s a win-win for me!

One of the reasons my Chicken Fried Rice is so easy to make is because of Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions. It’s a new product at Walmart and I use Uncle Ben’s® Garlic & Butter for this recipe.Easy Chicken Fried Rice

Flavor Infusions don’t require a flavor packet or any extra steps. Herbs and spices are steamed into each grain of rice. I can make dinner for two on date night or feed the entire family because the re-sealable stand-up pouch contains eight servings. There are no preservatives or artificial flavors and Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions is done in only 10 minutes.

Let’s Make Easy Chicken Fried Rice

Cook Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions according to the directions on the package. The beauty of this Chicken Fried Rice recipe is that I don’t have to add sauce or any additives since the herbs and spices are steamed into the rice.

Helpful Hint: I chop the chicken and all the vegetables before I start cooking. This meal cooks so quickly that it’s best to do the prep work first.

Chop the boneless, skinless chicken breast into cubes and saute in oil for 5-7 minutes or until done. Remove with a slotted spoon.
