As you may know, my friend May and I started a low calorie diet. In the name of not having to focus so much on our boyfriends food since we’re already focusing so much on ours (selfish, we know), we decided to go for some simple yet tastey entrees. In comes rice (easy and always satisfying) and some baked chicken.
Lets start with the chicken, shall we?
Baked Chicken Pesto serves 3
4 Chicken breasts (we had two big and two small)
Pesto (4 tsp per chicken, 2 for smaller ones)
Minced Garlic (2 tsp per chicken, 1 for smaller ones)
Butter (or anything you’d like to grease the baking pan with)
On defrosted chicken, spread pesto and minced garlic to one side of the chicken breast. Place into baking pan after greasing it with the butter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. (Make sure to time yourself. Anymore and it would’ve been too dry).
Yellow Rice with chicken broth serves 3-4
Rice (2 cups)
Water (1 cup)
Chicken brother (1 1/2 cups)
Sazon Goya (1/2 a packet)
Directions for Rice Cooker:
Put it all in the rice cooker and cook 🙂
Everything, from prep to fork in hand, will take you about 1 hour.
Not included in these pictures, we also served corn on the cob (which we included in our meal as well, take a look at that here).
Happy cookinnnn is happy livinnnn 😉
