Recipe: Chicken Rice and Broccoli Pack

Chicken Rice and Broccoli Pack

For the rice, I used instant brown rice but white works as well. I’ve also had luck using basmati rice. The trick is to soak it for at least 5-10 minutes. This helps speed up the cooking process and will ensure the rice cooks perfectly in the oven. After soaking the rice, simply divide it into 4 sheets of foil. Add a few tablespoons of the water that the rice was soaking in into the foil as well.

For the chicken, I used small (about 4 oz each) chicken breasts per foil pack but big chicken breasts can work as well. If your chicken breast is too big for 1 serving, cut it in half either horizontally or vertically and use half for each foil pack.
