So I'm still getting used to taking pictures of food... it is definitely harder than I thought! This is a little concoction that I pulled together, which of course means I didn't measure any of the ingredients! My dad always told me this was the sign of a good chef, but it is also the sign of a bad blogger of recipes! I have a good estimate here though, and of course, taste the sauce before you use it to make sure it is to your liking. I will probably make this again soon and add a comment if it comes out different- please also add your comments if you make it!
~1 pound of chicken (I used frozen chicken tenderloins from Costco- cheap and very quick to make)
~1 head of romaine lettuce
~3 large tablespoons of peanut butter (can be fat-free to increase health value!)
~3 tablespoons of soy sauce
~1 teaspoon sesame oil
~2 cloves of minced garlic
~2 teaspoons of rice vinegar
~2 tablespoons of cooking sherry
~1 cup dry minute brown rice
1) Cook chicken through.
2) Start making the minute brown rice according to directions (mine takes 10 minutes).
3) Make the sauce in medium size bowl: add peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, rice vinegar, and sherry and whisk together.
4) When chicken is done, put hot chicken in bowl with sauce and mix it up while cutting into pieces.
5) Wash and dry full romaine lettuce leaves
6) Arrange lettuce on plate, put some brown rice on and the chicken on top of that-- so simple!
Serves 2 (with a little leftover, but we also had a side of veggies)
Please enjoy this quick and delicious meal!
This is my first post on my new blog about (mostly!) healthy eating. As a on and off dieter- including Weight Watchers twice- I was constantly trying to find recipes that were both delicious and on my diet without spending a fortune on recipe books. As a 20-something always on the go, I like my meals to be quick in both preparation and cooking time, but still homemade. This site will combine recipes I found from books/the web/friends, and recipes I've tweaked or made up on my own. Of course, they will all be taste-tested by yours truly! I hope you can find something on here you like! Thanks for visiting (and thanks to all my friends who helped me think up a name for the blog- especially Kate, since this name is her idea!)
