Heat the oven to 425°F.
Remove the plastic from the tray of butter chicken. Transfer the rice pilaf to an ovenproof dish and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons water.

Stir the butter chicken, re-cover, and microwave both the butter chicken and the rice pilaf for 4 to 6 minutes, or until heated through.

Transfer the rice pilaf to a small sauce pot and stir to break apart.
