To make this recipe you’ll only need 5 ingredients. A chicken breast, Veetee Long Grain Rice, your favorite BBQ sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar.

Ingredients for BBQ Chicken and Rice Dish

Cut the chicken breast into 3/4 inch pieces. Lightly grease a non-stick skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Cook the chicken over medium-high heat until it has browned and cooked through.

Once the chicken is cooked, add the barbecue sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for an additional few minutes – until the mixture thickens. Stirring frequently to coat the chicken well. Once the mixture thickens, remove it from the heat and let it stand.

When your chicken comes off the heat to rest, it’s time to prepare your rice. Simply grab a package of Veetee Long Grain Rice and follow the instructions on the back of the package to heat it in the microwave. It literally takes 2 minutes to get your rice ready!

Veetee also sent me packages of Rice Pilaf and Thai Jasmine Rice to try — all are fantastic! The best part? They’re all two serving packages, so it’s perfect for Katie and I to make with our dinner at home.

After your microwave beeps and your rice is ready, add it to a couple of serving bowls, top it with the BBQ glazed chicken. If you’re feeling a bit fancy, you can add parsley and sesame seeds for flare and serve with a small dish of soy sauce!
