Recipe by Brittany L. Chin Jones, MS, RD, LD


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 package Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Garden Vegetable
  • 8 ounces (about 1 cup) cooked, diced chicken breast


Place a large sauce pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped broccoli florets, red bell pepper and black pepper, and mix in with the onion and garlic. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the broccoli and red peppers are fully cooked, about 3-5 minutes. While the vegetables are cooking, heat the rice according to the package directions. Once the vegetables are cooked, add the rice and diced chicken to the sauce pan. Mix well. Serve while hot. Makes 4 servings.
