Is it Risotto or Butter Chicken Brown Rice?

Guess what’s for lunch?

Looks like risotto? Nah, it isn’t, it’s Butter Chicken Brown Rice! 😛

Darien is here to study and so I cooked lunch for 3, and it fed us just right. 🙂

• 500g Chicken Breast
• 2 tablespoons sesame oil
• 1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
• 2 tablespoons chopped onion
• 2 tablespoons canola oil
• Mushrooms (quantity according to preference)
• Butter Chicken Sauce
• 1 cup water
• Brown Rice

1. Marinate cubed chicken breast with sesame oil, sweet soy sauce, light soy sauce, honey and pepper:

2. Stir-fry 1 tablespoon chopped garlic and 2 tablespoons onion in 2 tablespoons canola oil:

I think garlic and onion are absolutely necessary to make food smell better! 😀

3. After garlic browns and onion caramelizes, add sliced mushrooms and stir-fry.

4. Add chicken and leave to cook:

5. Add butter chicken sauce and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.

6. Add brown rice:

7. Mix evenly:

8. Tuck in to piping hot butter chicken brown rice!

This meal is easy to prepare and clean-up – I only used the rice cooker and frying pan (since it’s a dump-every-ingredient-into-pan-and-cook-meal!). 😉
I’m also glad we eat brown rice, which does not soak up too much of the sauce and was still nice to chew. 🙂
