I found ground chicken breast marked down to $1.29 a package at Kroger, so I decided to try another one of my “Un-Fried Rice” concoctions tonight. I missed the eggs and peas (didn’t have any), but other than that, it was very good and my daughter preferred it with the ground chicken. I had this cooked and served in 20 minutes!
- 1 10 oz Bag Birds Eye Steamfresh White Rice w/Mixed Vegetables $1.09
- 1 10 oz Bag Birds Eye Steamfresh Brown Rice With Broccoli $1.09
- 1/2 16 oz Bag Broccoli Florets $0.60 ($1.19 marked down at IGA)
- 1 Pound Ground Chicken Breast $1.29
- 1 Cup Frozen Chopped Onion $0.50 (1/2 the bag & I buy them 10/$10)
- 2-3 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Ginger Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
- Chicken Broth
- Cook the rice and the broccoli according to the directions on the bag; set aside.
- Combine the ground chicken, garlic, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and seasonings.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground chicken mixture until cooked through. As it cooks, break it up into small pieces. If it starts to stick, add a splash of chicken broth and turn your heat down.
- When the meat is cooked through, turn the heat down to low, add the rice and the broccoli, and mix well.
- Continue mixing and adding a few dashes of soy sauce until it is heated through and tastes good to you. We like a LOT of soy, which is why I use low sodium. It would be much too salty otherwise.
As you guys know, I like to make my recipes as healthy as possible. I use low sodium chicken broth like it is going out of style. It’s perfect for recipes like this. Ground chicken breast is VERY lean, so it really doesn’t release any fat when you cook it. I didn’t need to use any broth today, but if your chicken or rice starts to stick to the bottom of your pan, adding the broth will help loosen it and prevent it from burning. You can substitute one onion for the frozen chopped onion, but I BIG FLUFY HEART love frozen pre-chopped vegetables (onions, celery, carrots, etc…)…they are a quick cook’s best friend!
