Eat Clean Chicken and RicePosted: March 31, 2010
Chicken dishes can get so boring very quickly! I hate to make the same chicken dish more than twice or so, so I am always on the look out for new and exciting recipes! I found this recipe in the Eat Clean Cookbook and it was great! It was just as good as leftovers as well!!!
The recipe doesnt really say much about cooking the chicken, so I cooked it ahead of time and then added to the rice. I was afraid if not it wouldnt be cooked all the way thru!! So either cook it before hand or paritally cook and finish cooking with rice!
6 Boneless Chicken Breasts-cooked or almost cooked thru
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion peeled and chopped
4 cloves of garlic pressed through garlic press
1 tsp fresh Thyme
1 tsp fresh rosemary
3 cups of low sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups of brown rice
3/4 lbs fresh broccoli
1 cup Carrots, peeled and cut into penny slices
1/2 cup edamame, frozen
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium temperature. Add a onions, garlic m thyme, rosemary, and sea salt. Cover and cook over low heat until the onion has softened about 10 min. Add chicken broth. Stir in the brown rice and cook uncovered over high heat for 5 in. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 20 min.
Place the chicken breasts over the rice in the skillet. Cook for another 15 min, making sure the chicken is cooked. through. Once the chicken is done remove it from the pan and put it on a clean platter. Cover it with tin foil or another plate.
Add the broccoli, edamame and parboiled carrots to the rice mixture. Heat through 10 min. Season with sea salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Serve ri9ce immediately, along with one chicken breast.
