Rice and Sauce

One of our old standby things that we do when we are pressed for time is what we call "Rice and Sauce." This is when we make rice in the rice cooker then make up some kind of sauce to put over the top. This is usually ready in about 20 minutes - if you have the cooked meat in your freezer. Most of the time we make the sauce in a stroganoff style:

  • Cooked cubed chicken or cooked ground beef (that I have already in the freezer)
  • Cream of something soup
  • Sour cream
  • Onion soup mix
  • Milk
Heat through and serve over rice.

Other sauces we have enjoyed:

Southwestern Style:
  • Cooked cubed/shredded chicken
  • 1 c. salsa
  • 1 brick cream cheese
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup
  • Milk
Creamy Italian:

  • Cooked cubed chicken
  • Cream of something soup
  • 1 brick cream cheese
  • 1 packet italian dressing mix
  • Milk
Chicken Cordon Bleu:
  • Cooked cubed chicken
  • Diced ham
  • Grated swiss cheese
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • Milk
Another one we like:
  • Cooked cubed chicken
  • Sour cream
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • Milk
  • Put Chinese noodles and cheddar cheese over the rice then pour sauce over the top.
Still another:
  • Sauteed onions
  • Cooked cubed chicken
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • Frozen peas
  • Milk
  • I think we used a can of chicken gravy in this one as well.
I think the possibilities are endless! With our busy schedules, we LOVE throwing together a quick, hot meal. If you have other ideas, I'd love to see them in the comments!
