I created this yumminess when i realized that my chicken was going to be a little sweet and tangy so i wanted a bold hotness to blend nicely with it. Also brown rice is one of the few grains i can have (since i don't think i could get Chris to eat Quinoa or Barley... not sure i'm ready for that yet!) So here's what i did... I have this GREAT Pampered Chef Microwave rice cooker so i loaded it up with 3 1/2 c of water 1 c brown rice 2 tbsp sliced green onions 3/4 tsp minced garlic 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro 1 tspish of red pepper flakes splash of olive oil Pepper very small amount of I can't believe it's not butter light Cook in the micro for 35 mins and DONE This had a really nice kick that blended well with the chicken!
I'm southern, I live in the north (you'll never convince me MD is not the north) and I'm slightly sarcastic, sorry it just happens, like poop happens, my sarcasm happens too~
I LOVE my husband, my daughter, and my dogs, and I’m a Christian, though not always the best example. I try to do it all, but know i can't alone. I brighten my journey with a few bows, sparkles, monograms, and heels. This is how I brought my southern roots to the north!
