Knorr Sidekicks Chicken Fried Rice

2015-Jul-30 Knorr Sidekicks Chicken Fried Rice (front) When I cooked this packet of Knorr Sidekicks Chicken Fried Rice with the stovetop instructions of 1-3/4 cups water and simmered while COVERED, it came out looking like rice stew -- way more soup/stock than pictured. I recommend using less water if you want your rice more fluffy than wet.

Taste was predominantly like Knorr chicken stock -- slightly sweet, mostly salty, but not super-salty. Check your sodium content. Eat less of this a SIDE DISH, not your main rice dish.

That said, if allowed to sit, the rice and noodles will eventually absorb the rest of the water (without transforming into a mushy mound). At that point, maybe because you are getting less soup directly, it tastes less salty, and you can eat it standalone as a main.

The recommended 1 tablespoon of butter didn't do much for it, and you might be able to skip that. Definitely try the cooked rice first before stirring in butter. It may also be to keep everything from lumping together, though.

Final cooked portion is really good, and depending on your appetite can be anywhere from 2 meals to 4 light meals/accompaniments. This makes the current promotion at Superstore (just $1 per pack) a great deal.
