Whether it tastes good or not, the quick cooking rice is really convenient over most other options. I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but, I used to cook regular rice in a pot on the stove for a while. There were more times than I could count where the sauce pan had a bunch of rice caked on the bottom and it took 10 years to scrape all of it clean.
Eventually, I graduated to an Instant Pot, but, even those have a lot of cleanup involved and can still make a mess. That’s why I really like these bags of rice that you can just pop into the microwave. I was actually pretty surprised that they didn’t even need water added.
On top of that, there’s flavoring with herbs and carrots in this Earthly Grains Roasted Chicken.
The Nutrition Facts
Each of these bags contains about 2 servings each. I usually eat the amount of rice in a whole bag in a given day, so, I figured I’d plan for that. Eating the whole package gives you 420 calories with a tiny bit of fat in there. An entire package of this does have a lot of sodium, so, prepare yourself for that.
There’s a nice big chunk of carbs in this Earthly Grains Roasted Chicken rice. I say it a lot, but I’m pretty sure everybody needs carbs. Any time I try to cut them out of my diet, my sleep gets way out of whack. There’s also a solid amount of iron and a little calcium in these, yum.
Earthly Grains Roasted Chicken Ingredients
You’ll see some good ingredients in these and also some chemically sounding ones. In the way of good, there’s the parboiled long grain rice, salt, canola oil, and chicken broth concentrate. Also some chicken broth concentrate/powder and some dried carrots. On the not-so-great front, there’s maltodextrin, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate.
Even though the Earthly Grains Roasted Chicken cooking instructions are pretty straightforward, here they are anyways:
What if you want to cook it in a pan? Anyway, here’s the review.
Earthly Grains Roasted Chicken Review
I was lucky enough to have some left over pork rib or whatever the incredible chunk of meat was that I threw on my plate from the fridge. That meat and this full bag of rice together were really phenomenal. The only major problem was that I ate it at lunch time. Whatever I had planned for dinner couldn’t compete with how good this was.
Maybe it was just because I had already been in the mood for something savory, but this rice really did taste great with the rib.
