Asian-All American

A simple, homecooked meal that is literally Asian-All American!















>>> We've got rice...an Asian staple, but done more in the spirit of the grocery store boxed stuff (aka Rice-A-Roni style).
*
>>> We've got chicken...baked and on the bone.
*
>>> We've got a broccoli side...with hits of Asian goodness.
*

The remaining chicken from my $5 purchase...
the second meal I got out of it (Paprika Chicken was the 1st)
*
Marinade is sesame oil, soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic, scallions, salt, pepper.
*
Still playing with the brown rice.
Cooked up once again in chicken broth, just before all the liquid was absorbed I added this mix of scallions, carrot and broccoli.
*
At the end I added a touch of sesame oil, salt and pepper.
*
Fresh broccoli, cut up into bite size florets.
*
I love broccoli.
So tasty and so good for you too!
*
Cooked up in some sesame oil and garlic, then finished off with soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds.
*
The baked chicken.
*
My Asian All-American Baked Chicken Dinner!
*
This was VERY GOOD (aka Hubs really enjoyed it)!!
*
In the past if I was going to do this same combo, I would have purchased boxed Asian/Fried Rice, frozen broccoli and a bottle of teriyaki marinade.
*
Since starting this blog, my confidence in the kitchen has skyrocketed.
This was sooo easy, I suspect more healthy...
and no doubt even more delicious by being done from scratch!
