Emergency Dish?

My ward is doing an Emergency Preparedness Olympics tonight. I didn't have any intention of going, but a friend e-mailed a few days ago asking her friends to prepare dishes for the activity. I asked to see if she had people lined up for each dish, but she hadn't so I got tagged with the recipe below. Now, I'm not sure how practical this dish is during an emergency, but I'm about to try my hand at it just now.

Curry Simmer Sauce and Vegetables

1 16 oz can Potatoes

1 16 oz can Chick Pea

1 16 oz can Green Bean

1 12 oz can Chicken Breast (in water)

1 12 oz jar Trader Joe's Green Curry Simmer Sauce

1 1/2 cup Basmati Rice

1 cup water

Boil 1 cup water then add Basmati rice. Lower temperature, cover and cook for 20 minutes.

In a large sauce pan, pour simmer sauce, chick peas, green beans and warm. Fold in potatoes and chicken and cook to a simmer.

Serve the simmer sauce over rice.

Any emergency will be made much better with Trader Joes.

I think I want to have an emergency inside a Trader Joe's. Now that's my style.

That looks great! Our Trader Joe's opens on Saturday...I'll have to pick up some of that sauce.
