Simple Veggie, Chicken & Rice Bowl

Simple Veggie, Chicken & Rice Bowl

Here’s what you need:

3-4 large carrots, peeled and diced

1 zucchini, sliced

1/2 onion, diced

1/2 cup frozen peas

1 cup pre-cooked rice

2 chicken breasts (approx 1 lb)

2 tsp Vegeta (this spice truly makes the entire dish!! but if you need to sub with chicken bouillon you can, just use a lot less)

1 clove, crushed garlic

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tbsp butter

Salt and pepper to taste

Here’s how you make it:

Dice carrots up really small and boil them in a little bit of water (in a frying pan) until the water evaporates

Then add in diced onion and zucchini in a little olive oil to saute.

Now it’s time to add in the main ingredient: VEGETA!! It is a special seasoning that my mom always uses (she’s Croatian) and this in any dish is literally THE BEST!

Add in peas, garlic and salt and sauté in butter.

In a separate pan, grill chicken in a little oil in some garlic powder, pepper, and lawrys salt. Cook for about 10 minutes or until your chicken is fully cooked and then dice it up after into small pieces!

Then once the veggies are fully cooked, add in your pre-cooked rice and mix until well blended. Add 1 more tablespoon of butter, more vegeta and pepper to taste!

Lastly, mix the diced chicken into the rice and veggie mixture and ENJOY!
