Chicken and antipasto rice

Chicken and antipasto rice


Serves 2-4


  • 1 cup (200g) brown rice
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 2 chicken breast fillets
  • 1 x 225g jar antipasto vegetables in oil


Place rice and 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to lowest setting, cover with a lid and allow to simmer until water has been completely absorbed, approximately 20 minutes. Turn off heat and leave covered for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, slice chicken fillets horizontally into thin escallops. Place in a bowl and pour over some of the oil from the antipasto, ensuring it is well coated.

Heat a non-stick frypan over medium heat. Fry chicken for 1-2 minutes on each side until just cooked through. Set aside and keep warm.

Remove vegetables from oil and dice. Pour one tablespoon of remaining oil into the frypan and add vegetables and cooked rice. Stir to combine and warm through.

Distribute rice between serving bowls and top with chicken.
