I have always had Minute® Rice in my pantry, for as long as I can remember. Everyone loves rice and it’s so versatile. When the day has been jammed packed and I am walking in the door with hungry people staring at me, I can make delicious fluffy white rice in just 5 minutes or Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice in just 10 minutes. Today I got to try a new variety, Minute® Multi-grain Medley.

Through my partnership with Minute Rice, I have shared my favorite recipes with you such as Salted Caramel Apple Rice Pudding with Raisins, Easy Hawaiian Rice Medley, and Cheesy Broccoli Rice Salad with Bacon.

Today I made Lemon Chicken and Asparagus with Rice Medley. It’s so easy!

Lemon Chicken with Asparagus Rice Medley

You will need: 

1 pound of thin chicken strips
1 or 2 lemons – depending on how juicy they are or how much lemon flavor you enjoy
1 pound of Asparagus
1 box Minute Rice Medley
1 tbs. of  butter

Here in Southern California, many of us can just go outside and pick lemons from our trees almost year-round. My lemon tree is a great producer right now!

Directions: Cut one or two lemons in half and squirt the juice over the chicken.

 In a medium saute pan, melt the butter and saute the chicken strips. Add in 2 cups of water and 2 packets of Minute Rice Medley.minute rice 5
