    You don’t live in Canada. We don’t have prices like you’re paying. Easily double.

    I love all of your ideas!
    I wish we had the same of food that you have. Here in California are prices are almost doubled to what you posted.

    I make chicken and rice just a little different. When I buy the big packs of chicken, I boil and then shred the chicken. I freeze what I don’t use. I just mix the already cooked chicken in the cooked rice with the soup. So easy, but my kids love it.

    The chicken & rice recipe is GARBAGE!!! ** DO NOT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ** This recipe was started at 7 pm, it’s MIDNIGHT and we have crunchy rice. Tastes like a 2 year old made the “recipe.” More like a disaster.

        I was confused about whether the rice should be cooked first or not, maybe add that to the recipe – 1-1/2 cups cooked white rice? So, is it 1-1/2 cup before cooking or after? Also, do you just lay the whole chicken breasts on top?

        1. Passion For Savings says:

          The Rice is 1 1/2 Cups before you cook it. But you do cook it.

      Sounds like you added uncooked rice to the recipe. You know you were supposed to cook the rice first, right?! These are great recipes! Great ideas! :-)

    Found this on pinterest. Made the chicken fried rice tonight. Added frozen peas abd ground ginger to the mix. Gold mine, my entire family gobbled it up and asked for seconds. My hubby is in the middle of pharmacy school so I’m excited about having such an inexpensive, easy, delicious recipe to add to our meal rotation. Living on student loans makes for a tight budget!! Thanks for posting!
