First, I would like to say that no, I did not follow the recipe. I was making lunch for me and my 2 kids (DD8 and DS3), so it needed to be modified for the two of them. I did manage to make these lunches up completely from start to finish in the morning, in about 40 minutes, while also getting breakfast on the table. I started by getting the rice in the rice cooker, then putting the chicken in a bowl to marinate. I sliced enough onion and bell pepper for one portion, and started sauteeing in a little oil. I also sliced some bell pepper to put in their lunches raw, which they will eat. I left out the red pepper and green chilies completely. When the onions and pepper were done, I removed them from pan, and started cooking the chicken. When the chicken was cooked, I dropped in the raisins, and the rice was done. I layered everything, and both boxes came home empty! Thank you for posting. I will be making this again.

I'm an American, living between London and New Zealand. I love to cook and try new recipes and have tried many new things since living in the UK and New Zealand. When I bake, I like to start from scratch and don't use cake mixes, fake foods like Cool Whip or premade frostings. I am really happy cooking and get a huge sense of satisfaction when people enjoy dishes and treats that I make. I would love to open my own business in the food industry some day, but still working on that idea!
