Barbecue Chicken and Rice: One Dish Dinner

Getting dinner on the table fast without a lot of clean up is top on my list, how about you? It’s also important to serve a meal that my family will love, while staying within my budget.

All this week we are sharing budget friendly recipes with you, brought to you by ALDI. We are kicking off the week with this delicious, easy-to-make Barbecue Chicken and Rice.

At first the combination of chicken, barbecue sauce, corn and rice seemed a little strange to me. Although those are all ingredients we love and if I can make dinner in one pan, with minimal clean up, it was definitely worth the try.

Not only did this Barbecue Chicken and Rice taste delicious, it was super fast. From start to finish, including cutting the chicken, we had dinner ready in less than 30 minutes.

Not only is this dish quick – easy to prepare in one pan – delicious – it’s also budget friendly. The chicken breasts in the package at ALDI are very large, in fact we only used 1 breast from this package, leaving 2 others for another meal. And we all know how well rice stretches a meal too. The quality of the ingredients was also outstanding.

    Making a list of what you need to purchase and bringing your own bags is a good way to save money at Aldi

    • I haven’t made this yet, but I notice that a number of the “brand name” items are not names that I recognize and are not sold in my area. If your going to ask users from all over the country to try your recipes, keep it generic, ex. long grain rice, can corn, etc.

      • Hi Hazel, this recipe was made specifically for the ALDI grocery store. You can certainly substitute regular ingredients for the ones we listed.

  2. Jill Fortner says:

    Yum!

  3. Having a list is my best bet–I’m lost without it!

  4. Made this last night – Winner! Will definitely make again.

  5. This sounds really delicious

  6. My Aldi’s tip is to always shop with a list and early before things sell out!

  7. It was really good! But may I suggest adding canned pineapple too? That’s the one thing that would make it even better.

  8. I have trouble believing rice is ready in 5-7 minutes.

    • Hi Lindsey. the recipe calls for minute rice, which cooks in 5 minutes. If you like your rice softer, you can certainly cook it longer.

  9. This was a hit at my house. With a hubby and 2 grown sons to feed I’m always looking for easy economical recipes. The suggested brand names aren’t available here so I substituted my usual barbeque sauce, frozen corn and pre-cooked long grain rice I had in the fridge. I just added a little less sauce and chicken stock to compensate. Hubby suggested, like Dave above, that pineapple would be a great addition.
