- Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a large non-stick skillet, over medium/high heat.
- Add chicken, and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.
- Remove from skillet.
- Add 1 cup of water, barbecue sauce and corn to skillet.
- Bring to a boil.
- Stir in minute rice.
- Top with chicken.
- Cover and cook on low heat for 5 minutes.

I really like the concept of this recipe--barbecue flavored rice. I used some leftover, cut up chicken, about 1 & 1/2 cups. I think turkey could also substitute for the chicken. And I also didn't have instant rice so i used regular rice. I used 2 cups of water to one cup of regular white rice and a little bit more barbeque sauce. I poured some of the water into the BBQ sauce bottle and shook it all around to get every last bit. The recipe turned out very good. I used a big iron skillet, with some oil, to lightly fry my leftover chicken. Then I poured in my liquid and added my rice. I allowed the rice to simmer on low heat until it was done. Thanks for the great ideas.
I used this recipe as a side dish by not using the chicken. I also used regular rice and I added the sauce, "Diana's Original Bar-b-que sauce" as part of the liquid when cooking the rice. I did add finely chopped green pepper and carrot in the last 5 minutes of cooking too. It was a colorful, delicious, addition to our meal.
The above recipe did not call for enough barbeque sauce for our tastes... we added lots more during and after cooking. Had to cook regular rice on the side and add in, but it still tasted great. We used minced garlic instead of garlic powder and that gave it a savory kick. Easy to prepare and overall it was a good combo to please my boyfriends need for barbeque and my need for rice in a meal. Thanks, Dale.
