Chicken and Rice Wrap (Using Rice-A-Roni)

"Got this from the Rice-a-Roni recipe site. I use Rice-a-Roni quite often in different dishes when I am in a hurry and need to make something faster. Plus, it gives everything a jump start in the flavor departmnet. If you want to make this a vegetarian dish, leave out the chicken and add a can of drained vegetarian "Fri-chick" in place of the real chicken."

    I got this recipe off the back of the spanish rice flavor Rice-A-Roni box years ago. It's pretty good and makes alot. I have made it several times. I use 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts , cut into strips and add it in raw with the water, salsa, and seasonings. It cooks right in the skillet with everything else.That is how the recipe I have off the box says to do it. I don't think it would be as good with canned chicken.I add some minced garlic in it too. This recipe is easy and econmical.


I am married, have three children and two grandchildren. My youngest "oops" baby is just turning 17 and is going to be a senior in high school in the fall.. I love to cook and collect recipes. I get a lot of my good recipes from church potlucks. Since I am now retired and a stay at home mom, I have time to search the RecipeZaar site and try a lot of the recipes. We love living on the coast and would never move back inland!
