These award-winning, easy minute rice cups, "Mediterranean Chicken and Wild Rice Cups" can be made in 30 minutes, in a muffin tin, freeze well and make an excellent lunch box meal, snack, appetizer or main dish. A great alternative to cold sandwiches! These are 6 WW points each on blue plan.
Preheat oven to 400 F/205 degrees C. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
Cook brown rice and wild rice as per package directions (or use canned wild rice, which requires no cooking)
Cook chicken breast in olive oil on stove top over medium heat until no longer pink ** or use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken
Finely chop sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and chicken in the food processor. If you do not have a food processor, they can be finely chopped with a knife.
When rice is cooked, add eggs, chicken mixture, black olives, feta cheese and mix well.
Press mixture into muffin tins, and fill to about ¾ full. * Make sure you pack it in well with a spatula to ensure the rice cups stay intact!
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool in pan for 5 minutes. Use a knife to loosen edges.
Let cool another 5 minutes before removing.
Gently remove with narrow spatula.
Serve with tzatziki sauce, if desired. (This is really delicious!)
🌡️StoringI love having frozen lunch foods I can heat and pop into a lunch bag! It's like a little surprise gift I find in my freezer :) Make-ahead: This is an easy recipe with chicken and rice and you can make them ahead and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. Freeze: They freeze well for up to 3 months.Reheat (for school lunches) : Then heat these rice cups up in the morning and wrap them in aluminum foil, just before putting them in an insulated lunch bag. However, they still taste great lukewarm or even cold. *Send a plastic spoon and some Tzatziki sauce (this makes it even yummier) in a small Tupperware container and you have a tasty, interesting and healthy kids lunch or snack!🍽 EquipmentYou're going to need a muffin tin (affiliate link) for this recipe.My Amazon lunch bag recommendations (affiliate links)
