I traveled to Gainesville yesterday to watch my son play baseball. I wanted to leave dinner for my husband and my daughter before I left for the game so I tried a new recipe for chicken and rice bowls.
This recipe is a great way to use up leftover chicken OR turkey. It probably comes as no surprise that I end up with leftover broccoli quite a bit too. A little cheese and some brown rice gives new life to my leftovers and my family has no idea they're leftovers.
Chicken and Broccoli Rice Bowl
3 cups small broccoli florets, steamed
1 cup brown rice (cooked)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped, cooked chicken
salt and pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions
4 ounces light Velvetta cheese, cubed
Stir in rice and broccoli. Heat through.
I served the chicken rice bowls in these awesome little mugs that my sister in law got me for Christmas. They even have lids.
The verdict: They loved it! I have to admit that I was somewhat surprised that they liked it as much as they did. It was really quick to put together and the were easy to warm up in the microwave. This is a great healthy meal to keep in the frig for my hungry teenagers.
