Healthy Fried Brown Rice with Chicken & Cabbage

Well, good morning!  Thanks for stopping by.

I made this quick & easy dish with no intention to share it on the blog, but sometimes you just gotta.

So, it's March now and almost Spring, but we still have those days where it's kind of cold and grey outside (around these parts anyways).  Nothing better than comfort food on those days.

This comfort food is healthy *gasp*

Do this.

Healthy Fried Brown Rice with Chicken & Cabbage
serves 4

1 cup brown rice
1 1/4 cup chicken broth

1/2 head of cabbage, de-cored & chopped
3 chicken breasts (thawed, if frozen), diced
seasonng for chicken--garlic powder, salt, pepper, cumin
1-2 cloves garlic
1 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
4 fried eggs
soy sauce
coconut oil

Make your rice (either in the rice cooker, on the stove or in the microwave).  I like to use chicken broth instead of water.  Trust me.  It makes better rice.

Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a wok or large saute pan and throw in the cabbage.  Cook for about 7-8 minutes, stirring around occasionally, throw 1 clove of thinly sliced (or minced) garlic, some salt and about 1-2 tsp of soy sauce (to taste).  Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
Remove the cabbage and set aside.  Season the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder & cumin (just a pinch of each) and cook in some coconut oil in the wok (about another tbsp or less) until done.  Add mushrooms and a tsp of soy sauce.  Cook for another 2 minutes.
Remove the chicken & 'shrooms from the pan and add another tbsp of coconut oil to the wok.  Toss in the cooked rice and cook until crispy or until it starts to stick to the pan.  Toss everything together and top with a fried egg.  Add soy sauce to taste.
It's a mess.
But a good mess.
See you folks tomorrow for What I Ate Wednesday!

Did you notice the ole blog got a face lift?  I love it!
The design came from Maree at Grey Loves Design on Etsy.  Go check out her designs.  She is great and she's super nice to work with!
Also I'm trying pictures in an XL format.  I think I dig it.
