Quick Rice For a Busy Evening

– Digging through my archives I found this entry from back in February when I was 8 months pregnant. I am guessing I forgot about it and never hit publish. –


This was a pot of rice that I pulled together as the broth came to a boil. I needed dinner quickly, I had been busy all day. 20 minutes later I was fluffing it up and serving it with some mini egg rolls on the side!

Quick Rice


2 cups lower sodium chicken broth

12 1/2-ounce can chicken breast, drained

1 cup frozen broccoli florets

2 Tbsp lower sodium soy sauce

2 Tbsp all natural hoisin sauce

1 Tbsp sesame oil

1 cup jasmine rice


In a large heavy saucepan bring everything but the rice to a boil. Add in the rice, stir well and lower the heat to low. Cover tightly and let simmer gently for 20 minutes. Fluff up and serve.

Serves 3.
