Chicken Broccoli Rice Toppings

chicken broccoli rice topping (2)

A quick healthy recipe for when you are in a hurry or do not have enough time to cook an elaborate lunch or dinner for your everyday meal.  This Chicken Broccoli is great as rice topping with sauce that is a touch of sweet and salty.  A complete meal in  a bowl, my husband and I enjoy it as “TV dinner” on our movie nights.

I prefer to have broccoli a little undercooked so it remains crisp and not all soft and mushy and you get more of the  nutrients eating them this way, or raw even better. Broccoli is considered a good source of nutrients because it is rich in vitamin C, carotenoids (vitamin A-like substances), fiber, calcium, and folate. It is also a source of many substances called phytochemicals, or plant chemicals, that may have anticancer properties. So better eat your broccoli!!!
