Lemon Chicken with vegies & rice

Lemon Chicken with Veggies, Rice & Quinoa


Ingredients:
3-4 chicken tenderloins
Red Bell Pepper
Green Bell Pepper
Yellow Bell Pepper
Onion
Carrots
Broccoli
Radishes
Lemon
Whole Grain Rice (3 cups)
Quinoa (1/2 cup)
*Seasonings*

Boil a few cups of water & add your rice & quinoa. Its going to take a while to cook, so make sure its one of the first things you start. In another pan place your chicken in water or organic vegetable broth to cook. I added black pepper & Salt to the chicken. While these are cooking go ahead and slice your vegetables (Bell Peppers, Onion, Carrots, Broccoli, Radishes) into bite sized pieces. When your chicken is done remove from the pan & squeeze lemon juice all over the chicken. Then saute your veggies in little organic vegetable broth in the same pan you cooked your chicken in. I didn't add any seasonings to the veggies. Make sure to keep track of your rice & quinoa so it doesn't run out of water. I added pepper & season salt. Then I covered my plate in veggies, topped with about a 1/2 cup of rice & 1 1/2 sliced chicken tenderloins. It was more than enough food for me! So good!
