Chinese chicken and rice...who doesn't like Chinese food and chicken and rice? But the difference of this recipe compared to the traditional ones is... It is a much healthier version.
Prep Time: 15 Minutes Cook Time: 35-40 Minutes Serving: 4
There is garlic, ginger, rice, soy sauces and scallions. They are all the basic ingredients you can find in any Chinese dishes.
The biggest twist is the wild rice instead of traditional steamed white rice. On top of that, you have broccoli. The whole dinner is loaded with fiber. So, you won't feel
guilty after filling up your belly.
Just a little bit over 30 minutes, you will have a very delicious, healthy and filling dinner in the table.
On the day of serving this delicious recipe, I had some sautéed zucchini leftover. So, I stirred it in when the broccoli was done and warm the zucchini up.
So, if you don't have broccoli, feel free to replace it with zucchini. The vegetable soaking up the delicious juice and dripping from the chicken is out of this world.(A side note...the way how you cook the broccoli for this Chinese chicken and rice recipe is very similar to the way how you cook the "Simply Sauteed Broccoli")
Yes, you can double this recipe. Just bear in mind that your cook time will be longer because you need more time to brown all the meat.
If my little picky eater is so addicted to this recipe (my son asked me the next day to cook it again and he ate 4 pieces of chicken thighs the night before), I am sure that
you will cook this Chinese chicken and rice dish over and over again.
Besides, once you get the grip of preparing this chicken and rice recipe, you can put many twists to it and having different themes of dinner ideas. Here are just some few suggestions, such as Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Italian and so forth. The list is endless. Enjoy!
