Spicy Chicken and Rice

January 7, 2011 at 8:17 PM (Nutrition, Recipes)

My recipes tend to be a little of this, a little of that, so putting it into ounces and teaspoons is not always accurate, however, I will be as accurate as I possibly can.

I needed something quick and easy, both to cook and to eat, since tonight is Raid night in WoW with hubby, so we’ll be eating at our desks. LOL. I’m sure we’re not the only couple in America who do this.

8-10 Chicken Breast tenderloins

2 tbsp red chili pepper oil

6 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms

1 medium onion, coarsely chopped

4 oz fresh broccoli florettes

1/2 cup warm water

2/3 cup cooked brown rice

Mrs. Dash – preferential flavours .. garlic & herb or onion & herb are my favourites. I also occasionally like Extra Spicy.

Sauce: 1/4 cup Bragg’s Liquid Aminos soy sauce substitute, 2 tbsp white vinegar, 2 tbsp water, 1/4 tsp Mrs Dash original blend — Mix together in a bowl, set aside til ready to use.

Directions: Brown chicken tenderloins in the red chili pepper oil til cooked through and nicely browned on the outside. Sprinkle lightly with Mrs Dash garlic & herb.   Add the sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the chicken pieces, set aside.  Add mushrooms and onions to the liquid and the warm water, simmer til tender. Return the chicken breast tenderloins to the pan, add the broccoli and simmer til everything is of equal temperature, and the broccoli is a nice bright green colour.

Serve over the cooked brown rice for a fresh, low calorie, low carb, high protein, one-dish meal.

Or variation: slice the tenderloins before returning to the pan. Once everything is done cooking, add the rice to the mixture, stir, serve over a salad. There’s enough sauce in this that salad dressing is unnecessary. I like to add a sprinkle of chopped nuts or sunflower seeds if I’m serving over a salad.

    Sounds very yummy. I might try it less the chilli’s since we don’t like them here.

      It was only the chili oil that made it spicy, it works well with a sesame oil or olive oil too 🙂
