My sister in law made this the summer before my husband and I got married. She never made it again but I fell in love with the recipe and over the years it has become a family favorite. I make it just about every time family gets together.
I even got on a local news cooking segment with it many years ago.
Easy, fast, and mmm good.

How to Make Spicy Chicken & Rice


  1. Make sure you boil your chicken first or you can used can chicken. I like to use canned as it is quicker.
  2. Saute Minute Rice in 1 stick butter. Add cheddar cheese soup, Rotel tomatoes, Snap E Tom or Spicy V8. Cook on stovetop 20-25 minutes until rice is tender. Add chicken to skillet last, stir to heat thoroughly together. May need to add a bit of water while heating if it starts to thicken too much.
  3. When serving top with shredded cheese and picante sauce.
