Chicken And Rice Recipe

Chicken And Rice Recipe

This month Thrive chopped chicken is on sale and as you know, it my FAVORITE of the freeze dried chicken available. It is low sodium and unseasoned. I also like that it's smaller pieces because it refreshes (rehydrates) quick. If you're making something that you want done fast or you just want to have a side of chicken to toss on a salad, you want the chopped chicken.

If you're looking for a low sodium option for this meal, I suggest swapping out the Chefs Choice seasoning for the Salad Seasoning Blend. The Salad Seasoning Blend is the "go to" seasoning in our house. It contains parsley, garlic, white onion, chive, and red onion. I put this in almost everything we make and of course, on salads!

The Veloute' is a rich white sauce infused with chicken flavor. Like all sauces, the sodium count is higher but no high like chicken broth would be. Again, if you're looking at sodium reduction, use less of the Veloute'. 

Chicken & Rice Recipe



  1. In a medium saucepan, sweat garlic and butter.
  2. Add water, then all remaining ingredients, stirring well.
  3. Simmer for 6–7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Let rest for 3–4 minutes before serving.

This recipe will be on the table in about 16 minutes from start to finish. How's that for a quick and tasty dinner? It makes 4-5 servings.

Shop For Thrive Life Foods

When you go to shop, be sure to check out the monthly specials! That's where you can save money and stock up on the foods you need. I shop the specials first every month to stock our pantry and food storage. This month the chopped chicken is on special. The specials are for delivery customers so I suggest setting up a delivery to save the money.

When you set it up, you'll receive an email before the next month processes. If you don't want anything that month, simply skip your delivery. You can also change the date if you want your delivery earlier in the month or process 2 deliveries or more in a month. You can cancel your delivery at any time so there's no need to worry about being roped into a mandatory autoship.

When you set up your delivery, if you want it to process ASAP be sure to click ship now. It will most likely have you choose a date 1 or more days in the future to ship. Save your order and then go back to that page and near the bottom you'll see ship now.
