I was pleasantly surprised the other day when a 'CREATIVE MOMENT' turned out fabulous - and healthy. The best part? It was ready in 3 MINUTES. Yes people, 3 minutes.
THE 3 MINUTE MEAL:
|1/2 CUP OF PACKED COOKED RICE (BROWN or WHITE). I use microwavable rice. Don't heat - add straight from package.|
|Pour chicken and broth over rice|
|Sprinkle on frozen soy beans or your favorite green frozen vegetable (1/4 - 1/2 cup)|
|A couple dashes of this|
|Cover with saran wrap to steam|
|Microwave 2-3 minutes|
|Sprinkle 1/2 of a minced kiwi and its juices over the hot entree. |
(I take a knife to one half and make vertical and horizontal cuts. Scoop out with a spoon)
|Sprinkle a TABLESPOON of sliced roasted almonds over the kiwi fruit. And that's it - you're done!|
You'll end up with a dish that looks like this!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
WOULD YOU TRY THIS QUICK DISH?The kiwi is the perfect compliment to the chicken and rice, but you could always substitute the proteins, fruits and seasoning to make it unique. The almonds give it a bit of crunch and flavor - and is an important ingredient in this dish.
Do you have other quick cooking dishes for the microwave?
