Quick stirfry brown rice meal

6 Jun

I am always looking for short cuts when cooking, especially when one has so much to do at night.


Last night I made a quick, healthy, tasty meal that had my husband coming back for seconds.


My ingredients :


  • Brown rice
  • Skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • Mixed veg (I used mushrooms, green pepper, onions, peas and mixed vegetables)
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • Hoison sauce
  • Garlic

Cook your brown rice in a pot, as per packet instructions.


In a wok or pan, brown your chicken pieces with salt, pepper and garlic.  Once the chicken is browned, add the mushrooms and green pepper and cook until soft.


Once the veg is cooked, add your other veg (you can use any veg your choose).  Once rice is cooked, add to the pan and mix through.


In a separate bowl, mix a tablespoon of sweet chilli sauce with a tablespoon of hoisin sauce. Add a little boiling water to make it a thinner consistency.  Sauces


Then add the mixture to your pan and mix through with the rice, chicken and veg mixture.


Voila! Dinner is done!

    Just one question, I bought brown rice once but it cooks long which one did you use?

      It does unfortunately cook long, so allow time for that. Brown rice is healthier, has fiber and keeps you fuller for longer. I use the tastic, I think.
