- 2 cups instant rice*
- ¼ cup freeze-dried peas
- ¼ cup shelf stable parmesan cheese**
- 2 packets chicken concentrate
- 1 tsp butter powder
- 1 can 5-ounce chicken, with pop top
At home pack the dry ingredients in a quart freezer or sandwich bag. Mark bag “Add 2¼ cups water”. Pack the chicken can with the bag.

Add the chicken with broth and 2¼ cups boiling water to ingredients. Stir well, cover tightly and let sit for 15 minutes.
One Pot Method:
Bring 2¼ cups water and chicken, with any broth, to a boil. Add in dry ingredients, stir well. Turn off stove, put on lid and let sit for 10 minutes. In cool weather, or at altitude, put in a pot cozy.
*Minute Rice. Instant brown rice can be substituted for some or all, but will need to simmer a bit before turning off the stove. Brown rice works better as a One Pot Method, rather than FBC or Mug Methods.
**The green can (Kraft) or similar.
