Betty Crocker – Asian Chicken Helper Gluten Free (Review)

I have always been a big fan of Betty Crocker, especially the cake mixes.  I think my oldest cookbook and the first one I bought myself is my Betty Crocker cookbook.  I still use it and adapt recipes to become gluten free.  I don’t really recall buying the Betty Crocker hamburger helpers or anything really even when I was eating gluten, however I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the Asian Chicken Helper – Chicken Fried Rice GLUTEN FREE! Both Bryan and I were impressed with the flavor and consistency of it.  We found this at our local grocery store a few weeks ago and it was on sale so we decided to give it a shot – and we both decided tonight that we would buy it again.  I’ll also have to keep an eye out for any others that might be gluten-free to try.  The season packet that comes with it has a great flavor to it and it was almost gravy like which we both really enjoyed.

This made a great week night meal – done in about twenty minutes and requires very minimum ingredients and if you would like you could even add some additional frozen veggies to the mix (add a cup of whatever veggie you might like – thawed, 5 minutes before the end of simmer time):

What you need:

1 lb uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 2/3 cups HOT water (not boiling)

2 eggs

1- Cu the chicken into 1/2 inch pieces.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add chicken; cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until outsides turn white.  In a small bowl, lightly beat eggs and set aside).

2 – Stir in HOT water, seasoning mix and uncooked rice.  Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.

3 – Reduce heat.  Cover; simmer about 20 minutes, stirring once, until rice is tender and liquid is mostly absorbed. If not absorbed, increase heat to medium and cook uncovered 2 minutes longer until absorbed.

4 – Increase heat to medium. Push rice and chicken to side of skillet.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in other side of skillet.  Add lightly beaten eggs and scramble eggs in oil until cooked; remove from heat.  Stir eggs into rice and chicken.  Refrigerate leftovers (if you have any).
