recipe review: chicken and broccoli
I had some nice organic chicken breasts which had been in the freezer for quite awhile--since before the vegan program--so I really wanted to use them. I was feeling quite uninspired for chicken breast ideas though, so I consulted my favorite cooking blog and decided upon this recipe. It turned out yum!
This is a pretty quick recipe, but you do need to cook the rice separately, cook the broccoli separately, and take the time to cut up the raw chicken into little bite sized pieces, so it is not that quick. My other hesitation was that the recipe calls for hoisin sauce. I had to ask myself, do I want to clutter my fridge with a jar of hoisin sauce that I might not even like? In the end, I'm glad I did. This was tasty, pretty easy, and I really enjoyed having a small portion in my lunch the next day. And I love a dish where the vegetable in incorporated right in.
Have you tried any new recipes lately?
