Ingredient Info
Brown rice is a whole-grain rice with only the outer husk removed. As a result, brown rice has a wonderful nutty flavor and chewy texture. This also means brown rice takes a little longer to cook than does white rice. Store brown rice sealed in an airtight container in the pantry for up to six months.
Ingredient Substitution
Bone-in chicken breasts can be used in place of the boneless chicken breasts. Cook them an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
Healthy Hint
Brown rice is higher in fiber and B vitamins than white rice.
Serving Suggestion
Multi-grain rolls, sparkling water and hot green tea complete the meal.
