Warming the chicken rice in the microwave

The next time you need to prepare a quick meal of rice and chicken, consider making it in the microwave. Save time by using leftover chicken or buy roast chicken from the supermarket and use instant rice instead of basmati or jasmine. Then, all you miss to do is look for some additions able to return two ingredients in one meal. The thick soup or sauce work well with the chicken rice, but do not forget to add flavor to the meat spice.
