My take on: Easy "Fried" Brown Rice

Take Out anyone?!?

Fried rice, yum. Like always I'm trying to improvise techniques and come up
 with easy takes on my favorite (take-out or fast food meals).

1 Chicken Breast filets
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup frozen peas and carrot mix
1/2 diced red bell pepper
1/4 onion chopped
2-3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp Stir-fry sauce (your choice)
2 eggs *optional

Let's get started with this healthier not so fried "fried brown rice".
Split each chicken breast into 2, season both sides with salt and pepper.
Sear each side fore about 5 minutes until golden. Take out and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
 Then cube the breast and set aside.

Cook brown rice accordingly and set aside.

Meanwhile dice the onion and bell peppers. In a large skillet, heat up some oil, add onion and
cook until translucent. Add red bell pepper, cooking about 2 minutes and finally add the
 peas and carrots mix. Cover and steam for about 3 mins. When rice is ready add to the
veggies mix, followed by the diced chicken, lastly add some low sodium soy sauce and mixing to combine. At this point you can crack 2 beaten eggs and stir into the rice. That's pretty much it!
 Congrats you've just made easy brown "fried" rice.

Enjoy!! xoxo
