I always love looking at recipes in magazines, books, TV, etc! It gives me great ideas for my creations! I always look at the recipe and think “how can I make it healthier?” and “how can I make it easier.”
Here is a super simple recipe to make in just minutes!
2 tsp canola oil
1 1/2 cups brown instant rice
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 can (20-oz) crushed pineapple, undrained
1 bag frozen stir-fry vegetables
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsps soy sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
In a skillet, coat pan with oil. Add rice, water, pineapple, vegetables and garlic. Let simmer till vegetables and rice are tender for 8 to 10 minutes. Add chicken and heat for the last two minutes. Top with soy sauce and serve.
Most recipes use a sweet and sour sauce but the pineapple adds the perfect amount of natural sweetness without adding extra sugar. It is definitely a winner! (you can use your shredded chicken from yesterday’s tip Time-Saving Crock-Pot Chicken)
