So, one Tuesday evening, I found myself in a familiar position, staring into my fridge, wondering what in the world to make for dinner. Leftover rotisserie chicken and shredded cheese? Not exactly a complete meal.
A quick scan of the pantry revealed a forgotten box of Southwest Grains. And I thought, “Why not?” It was exactly what I needed to make a meal out what I had on hand.
1. Cheesy Southwest Chicken Salad
The verdict? A delicious, dinner-worthy salad. I ended up liking my 20-minute dinner creation so much, I came up with two more ways to do the chicken + salad + topper formula.
2. Zesty Italian Salad
The best part about this dinner is the convenience factor. The grains come in a bag you boil and rinse. So easy! While the grains cook, brown the chicken and grab any toppings. This weeknight dinner comes together quickly and is a great way to use up on-hand ingredients.
