Recipe for family meals :

Solo Microwave Chicken and Rice

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Bill says that if you have any questions feel free to email him - click here or if you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

"In a few weeks the college dorms will be opening, and students who do not like institutional food are going to looking for another way to cook. Microwave Popcorn Popper works very well for this recipe and fits into most microwaves found on college campuses".


1 small boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup onions, chopped
1/4 cup green bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup uncooked rice (not instant)
1 cup water or chicken broth
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried basil

  • Put butter into a Microwave Popcorn Popper or a glass casserole dish, and microwave on high for one minute.
  • Add the uncooked rice, and stir until all the grains are coated in the butter.
  • Add everything else, and microwave on high for 10 minutes.
  • Let sit for an additional 5 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
