Forget the boxed version! Make this popular side dish right at home. Great chicken flavor, with less sodium and much cheaper than the store bought stuff. This chicken rice is a great side dish for a wide variety of meals.

When Mr Plain and I first lived together, we dined completely differently than we do know.  

Obviously, we needed alot less food and grocery shopping was stress-free. But, one of Mr Plain’s favorite things to eat was Chicken Flavored Rice a Roni.  It was tasty and simple, but, darn! It is chocked full of sodium. Now, in moderation, I guess that wouldn’t be too much of a problem. But, he also discovered a few years ago, he has very high blood pressure. So, too much sodium is a big no-no around here.

This rice blend mix helps us out.  He still get some chicken-flavored rice and it has alot less sodium. It also tastes much better than a box of Rice a Roni.

Give it a try! You won’t want to go back to the boxed version ever again-

I am confused that the chicken seasoning mixture amounts are so small, and then in the recipe, it calls for 1/4 cup of it?

I made it today to eat along with a chicken/sundried tomato/feta/pesto dish and it was fantastic. I didn't have powdered bouillon, but used chicken Better than Bouillon in the water and guessed on the rest.

If you add of the dry mix ingredients together, it adds up to almost 3/4 cup. Good for 2-3 servings of rice. You can use more or less, but, 1/4 cup is a good approx amount. Hope that helps :)
