Whether you are new to meal prepping, or a meal prep vet, sometimes our lunches and dinners can get very boring. Things become so routine that they can often become mundane, too. One key to jazzing up your meals lies in the spices you use. You can also look for products that are fragrant and aromatic!

Minute Instant Jasmine Rice is perfect for modern day cooking and is the first instant aromatic rice – and it’s ready in only five minutes. With the combination of the curry seasoning used in this recipe, your home will smell divine! This rice is very similar to the original Minute Instant Rice in that it is easy, convenient, and so fluffy!

Minute Instant Jasmine Rice is precooked and then dried. This means you have convenient rice right at your fingertips for those weeknight dinners.

Meal Prep Tips

  1. Choose a dish that includes a sauce. This curry chicken is great for meal prep because it includes a sauce to drizzle over the chicken. Meal prep chicken can get boring and leftovers can become really dry after you store them. When paired with a sauce, the sauce prevents the chicken from drying out.
  2. Load up on the right storage containers. Plastic containers do not work well when reheating. They also stain very easily. I recommend glass containers with lids.
  3. Label your containers. I like to use sticky notes. I jot down the name of the dish and the day I prepared it. This helps me keep track.

Freezer Tips and Batch Cooking

  1. Schedule batch meals in advance. You may want to set aside an entire day if you plan on making a few meals. Invite a friend over to join you. I’ve found batch cooking with others can be so fun! You also get to help motivate someone else to plan out their meals, too!
  2. A lot of dishes can be stored in freezer bags for bulk meals, even a dish like this one! Freezer bags will allow for more storage room in the freezer.
  3. Label your contents. As I mentioned above, it’s helpful to label your meals. Once you have frozen something, it may become unrecognizable!
  4. When you’re ready to eat the frozen meal, remove it from the freezer and place it in the fridge the night before so that it can do most of its defrosting. I’ve found the food tastes a lot better using this method, as opposed to placing a frozen dish directly into the microwave.

This recipe was good, quick and easy. First off I already had 2 cooked shredded chicken breast in the fridge left over from the night before. I added the Chicken along with all the other ingredients to my instant pot. I did add about 2 Tbls of curry powder instead of what it calls for and instead of parsley I added cilantro plus 2 cloves garlic. I did sauté the onions in my instant pot before adding the rest of the ingredients. I put the IP on high pressure sealed the valve and cooked for 13 min and in that time I cooked one cup of rice with 2 c water . Came out perfect. Oh an I turned the pressure valve to vent as soon as the 13 minutes was up.

I love meals I can start in the morning and have at night and even better that they can be stored and used for lunches the rest of the week. Great tips on meal prep and storing. Can't wait to up my curry game with this slow cooker chicken dish.
