  • Yield 4 servings

Try adding peas and carrots for added nutrition.

Ingredients

1 cup brown rice
1 (16-ounce) can low-sodium chicken broth
4 (4-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. Bring the rice and broth to a boil in a saucepan; reduce the heat.  Cook until the rice is tender; drain.
  2. Saute the chicken in a nonstick skillet over low to medium heat until cooked through, turning occasionally.
  3. Whisk the egg and milk in a bowl until blended.  Scramble the egg mixture in a skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray until the desired degree of doneness.
  4. Combine the rice, chicken, and scrambled egg in a skillet.  Cook over low heat just until brown, stirring frequently.  Cool slightly and garnish with parsley and carrot strips.
