  1. Melt Spread in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, stirring occasionally, until chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.
  2. Add 2 cups water, Knorr(R) Rice Sides(TM) - Chicken flavor, carrots and celery to same skillet and prepare according to package directions.
  3. Stir in chicken and hot sauce. Serve sprinkled with blue cheese and, if desired, additional chopped celery.


  • Tip:
  • To change it up, turn this recipe into nachos! To make Buffalo Chicken & Rice Nachos, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Increase blue cheese to 1/2 cup and combine with 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese; set aside. Arrange 1 bag (about 12 oz.) tortilla chips in a single layer on 2 aluminum foil-lined baking sheets. Evenly top chips with prepared Buffalo Chicken and Rice mixture, then sprinkle with cheese mixture. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with additional hot sauce if desired.

Added onions for flavor, can't have spicy stuff right now so perfect.

Not that healthy (of course it's packaged), my husbands say "4"

I thought this was really good! It was an easy and quick lunch using things I always have on hand. I did add extra hot sauce to my bowl, but I think the recipe is intended to have a mild flavor...

Not bad. I wish I had added more hot sauce than called for. I will definitely have to try the nachos mentioned in the footnotes, those sound even better.

Made into nacho's as the footnotes mention and these were good. They needed more pepper sauce than the recipe called for in my opinion to make them true buffalo flavored but other than that this...
