This is one of Shaun’s favorite things that I make-and it’s chicken! He requested that this go on the lineup and I happily obliged.
It’s a super simple and pretty quick meal.
Here are all the ingredients you’ll need:
For the Chicken
-1/2 cup Soy Sauce
-1 TBSP Agave Nectar
-1 TBSP Honey
-Mix the soy sauce, agave nectar and honey and place then add chicken. I used a glass dish trying to be environmentally aware but I prefer zip top bags.
(I used drumsticks for Shaun, breasts for me)
-Marinate for at least half an hour but up to 24 hours. If you’re using a glass dish or bowl, make sure you flip it every so often. With a zip top bag it is covered more easily but I still flip it a couple of time.
-Cook using your preferred method. I BBQ’d tonight but I also live in California where it’s 45 at night in December. You could use a grill pan on the stove or oven.
For the Rice-I made a ton-but you can easily modify this down-just divide by 3!
-3 cups cooked brown rice
-10 oz bag of frozen peas and carrots
-3 strips of bacon
-3 eggs, beaten
-3 TBSP Soy Sauce
-Pepper to taste
-Chop the bacon into small pieces (I’ve also used ham before)
-Spread evenly in a pan and cook over medium heat
until done to your liking
-Drain the fat
-Cover for about 2 minutes, until just steamed
-Add rice and soy sauce and cook until warm
-Make a well in the middle of the rice mixture-this helps your eggs stay fluffy, if you just add it to the rice, it’ll stick to the rice and you won’t really get much egg flavor
-Add eggs and scramble
-Once the eggs are scrambled, mix in the eggs with the rice and season with pepper
My plate (which I enjoyed!)
Shaun said that the rice is “FABULOUS” and gives the entire meal 4 stars.
