Chicken and rice is the ultimate comfort food. In this Easy weeknight meal recipe, I make a very simple stir fry with some left over uncooked boneless Chicken and pair it with instant rice. Instant rice is basically rice that has been cooked and dehydrated and adding it to a hot liquid will bring it back again. This makes a wonderful satisfying meal.
