There are two extra hard times of the day. The morning rush when we are all trying to get out of the door, and then again around 4:30pm. Everyone comes home from school and activities. They are starving and I am trying to get dinner on the table while helping with homework and everything else.
On top of that, my husbands schedule has changed drastically and dinner together has now become a new challenge.
Eating dinner together is one of the most important things we can do as a family. Remember, Family Dinners are one of our Must Have Resolutions this year.
Lately I have been trying to get dinner more under control. Creating meal plans and an arsenal of recipes that are convenient, easy, and good for us.
Tonight we tried something new, and it was a hit. I thought I would share. I can't be the only one who struggles with the early evening rush.
If you need to get dinner on the table quick, here is a perfect weeknight meal. If you are trying to impress dinner guests, this is still the perfect recipe.
Carbonara Rice with Chicken
Minute Ready-to-Serve Rice
Basil-Fresh is best
1. Grill or Broil your Chicken Breast. Cut into slices.
2. Cook your Minute Ready-to-Serve Rice. This is my favorite part of the meal. It only takes 60 seconds and the rice is ready. It tastes like it came out of a rice cooker.
3. Mix together the rice, bacon, peas, and basil.
4. Add as much Alfredo Sauce as you would like.
5. Plate your carbonara rice and top with sliced chicken.
It took less than 20 minutes to get this meal on the table. All 4 of our children loved the meal and hubby gave it two thumbs up. He added a little hot sauce to his.
