Brown rice tossed in Roasted Chicken, Crunchy vegetables, peppers and subtle spices. It is super healthy and packed with protein. This has very minimal amount of oil too. Can any dish be healthier than this?
This recipe is coming to you just at the right time of the year. After all that sugar and butter loaded stuff you might have had during the holiday season, you might be looking for a healthy recipe right ??
I have been working on creating interesting recipes using brown rice and millets. So far I have been enjoying these new grains. This particular recipe is one of my favorites. The colorful veggies, the crunch, nutty flavor of brown rice and it is very fulfilling too.
If you want to skip chicken that’s absolutely fine. There will still be enough vegetables. If you wish you can add chickpeas or tofu instead of chicken to compensate the protein part. But I would strongly recommend adding broccoli and peppers. Sweet corn adds a hint of sweetness in every bite, it is optional though.
If you find cooking brown rice is time taking then the easiest way is to soak it for 15-20 minutes before cooking. This will shorten the cooking time.
