Easy and quick chicken rice recipe. The dish is perfect for lunch or dinner. Optionally, you can add Parmesan or mozzarella to the recipe to create a more cheesy texture. To diversify the recipe, add mushrooms or carrots and garnish the meal with chopped parsley. After cooking, you can store the dish in the fridge for up to 2 days. We don't recommend freezing it.

Weight Loss Tips

  • The taste of portioned pieces of meat deteriorates during storage. Fry the meat shortly before serving.

  • The most harmful type of meat's heat treatment is frying. Oven-baked or grilled meat without the use of oil is much healthier.

  • Use spray cooking oil when you fry food. This will help you to use less oil for cooking.

  • Weight your grains before cooking: In this case, it’s much easier to count how many calories you’ve got from your porridge.
