*There is something about rice and chicken that makes you feel good inside.
It's like "cuddling" for your taste buds.
You know how your guy doesn't always want to cuddle? This dish may just make him go wild for some snuggling. And it's so delicious, he might even do the dishes afterward.
See, you don't always need to go to Chinatown for some great Chinese-inspired food!
- 1 lb chicken tenders (easier to chop into pieces)
- 1/2 cup of orange juice
- 1/2 cup of low sodium soy sauce
- handful of snap peas
- packet of brown rice (instant)
- teaspoon of minced garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
Please Note: The only reason this is an OY VEY! is because it requires cutting raw chicken.
Chop up that raw chicken into bite-size pieces.
In a Pyrex dish, mix the orange juice and soy sauce evenly. Marinate your chicken for at least a half hour.
Warm up your pan to medium heat. Spray with cooking oil, transfer your marinated meat and cook your chicken. Reserve most of the marinade. Season while it cooks with a dash of salt and pepper.
After about 3-5 minutes, when the chicken is almost fully cooked, add your handful of snap peas and the minced garlic.
Mix all around for about 3 more minutes so that the flavors marry. Add in some of the marinade and let it simmer on Low heat.
In a microwave safe bowl, cook the rice with water according to the box directions.
Drain, plate and serve!
How to Plate: It will be gorgeous on a crisp long white plate (See my above pic!)
