Chicken, veggies, and brown rice make a great combination for a filling yet nutritious meal for two.

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into chunks (about 2 ½ cups)
  • 1 small white onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • Fresh flat leaf parsley

Directions:

  1. To cook chicken, slice lemon and place slices on a large piece of aluminum foil.  
  2. Add sliced vegetables and olive oil to a large bowl. 
  3. Season with spices and toss to coat evenly. 
  4. Add vegetables and chicken to foil. 
  5. Fold the aluminum foil over and around the chicken to create a pouch.
  6. Bake at 350 F for about 40 minutes (depending on thickness) or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F and the juices from the chicken run clear.
  7. Cook rice to package instructions. 
  8. Serve chicken and vegetables with brown rice and garnish with fresh herbs
