Tip: To make this a quick and easy dinner cook the rice ahead of time or use leftover rice. Just make sure if you are pre-cooking the rice that it is cooled quickly and stored in the fridge so that it is safe for eating. For those that are really time poor you can use “ready rice” to speed up the prep time.
