Day 2 Brown rice with stewed chicken #danilleanteam
This video shows how I cooked my lean lunch on Day 2 of my health journey.
I enjoy eating brown rice, it is healthy and filled with fibre.
Today's lunch consisted of a salad, brown rice and stewed chicken.
Brown rice recipe
1/3 cup brown rice
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tsp chopped bell peppers
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp margarine
Bring hot water to a boil. Add salt and margarine.
Wash brown rice and add to boiling water.
Allow to boil for 35 minutes. Add bell peppers when most of the water has evaporated.
Stewed chicken recipe
2 chopped chicken breasts
1 Tsp brown sugar
1/4 cup water
Chicken can be seasoned with green seasoning a couple hours before cooking.
Caramelise brown sugar in heated oil in pot.
Add chicken and stir so chicken gets brown and covered in the caramelised sugar.
Add hummus and 1/4 cup of water.
Cover pot and let steam for 10 to 15 minutes.
Tear lettuce into bite sized pieces. Slice cucumbers.
Arrange onto plate
