Making rice bowl recipes for dinner is one of our favorite quick fix meals! Dinner can be so tricky when there’s so much going on during our busy weeknights. Between homework and the many kids activities it seems like there is no time to get dinner on the kitchen table. Instead of our usual brown rice bowls with just chicken and salsa, I added Green Giant™ Honey Roasted Corn Steamer for a fun twist and more vegetables. I used precooked brown rice that is microwavable as well as precooked chicken breast that I chopped. Simple and flavorful weeknight dinner that is a breeze to add to your menu plan.

    those doses improved benefits could very well be projected.

    Those steamer bags of veggies are my favorite invention. They seriously save dinner for us all the time. I haven’t tried the honey roasted corn yet though…yum!!

    Love this whole recipe! 🙂

    I love the pop of color the corn gives in the ‘after’ picture! This looks like such a good idea, and a much more affordable way to enjoy chicken and rice bowls than going to Chipotle once a week. I like that this is such a simple dinner idea!
