Southwest Style Chicken and Wild Rice

Submitted by: RACINGSLUG
Southwest Style Chicken and Wild Rice

Introduction

A tasty, colorful, very filling meal with a lot of room for improvisation. Good source of whole grains and protein. Most of the prep time is cooking the rice, so you can cook it as you perform other activities. Those watching their sodium may opt to use water instead of chicken broth.

Ingredients

    12 oz. chicken breast, cut into pieces
    1 can Green Giant Southwest Style Corn
    2.5 cups organic chicken soup broth (optional)
    1 red bell pepper, diced
    1/2 medium onion, diced
    1 cup Long grain brown wild rice
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    Chili powder to taste
    Cilantro to taste

Directions

Combine 1 cup long grain brown wild rice with 2.5 cups chicken broth. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When about 15 minutes remain for the rice, stir together olive oil, chicken, peppers, onions, and southwest style corn in a large wok or cooking pot. Cook and stir for approximately 15 minutes, adding cilantro and chili powder to taste. If you time it right, the chicken should finish at the same time as the rice.

Serve chicken mixture over rice and enjoy!

Makes about 4 servings
Each serving = about 1 cup of rice and 3 oz of chicken with plenty of veggies.
