I am a little obsessed with lunch recipes and ideas lately. My daughter just started kindergarten so packing a lunch box daily has taken over my brain!

I thought this Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Recipe would be great in her lunch box. But . . . it never quite made it in there. I ate it all! Seriously, every last bite.

Chicken salad is usually slapped in between sliced bread or rolled up into a wrap. I decided to eat mine with Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. And I think that will be the way I eat it from now on. This chicken and rice is not bland and boring. It is simple yet full of flavor!

Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is perfect for back to school season. It’s portable container is ideal for lunch boxes. I like it for potion control. (I need that!)

Just remove the film cover. Then microwave for 60 seconds and serve. Fully cooked rice with nothing to add!

I wish I had these back when I worked full time in an office setting. It would’ve made my lunches so much better!

The white rice is great because it will go with just about anything. Make sure you try the Multi-Grain Medley. It is a blend of whole grains including brown rice, quinoa, barley, oats, wheat and rye. my new favorite thing!
