Back to School time at our house is a very busy time of the year. In fact, since my husband and I are both teachers, we usually don’t show our heads socially anywhere until late October as we prepare for the new school year and our new students.
However, eating healthy doesn’t have to be time consuming. This meal was simple. I bought a fresh rotisserie chicken at my local Shop Rite, added some yellow rice (one of my new favorite side dishes) and some fresh fruit. Voila. Easy!
How do you prepare healthy meals during back to school?
1/2 c white rice
1/2 c brown rice
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp garlic
1 3/4 c chicken broth (I use Knorr)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp Chopped cilantro
Drizzle extra virgin olive oil in a sauce pan on medium heat. Add garlic and brown. Add rice and tumeric, stirring until coated. Then add the chicken broth. Cover and let simmer for 20 min. Mix in the cilantro when the rice is done cooking and broth is completely absorbed.
