This is something my family likes alot, and it's super easy for one of those rushed evenings:
3 Tbsp EVOO, divided
3 green onions, chopped (I like the ones with the big bulbs that are hotter)
1 c. long grain brown rice (the long cooking kind)
2 c. boiling water
2 or 3 tsp. chicken bouillon paste(I use "better than bouillon" brand)
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 zuchinni, diced (1" pieces)
2 large hothouse tomatoes, diced
1 pkg already-grilled chicken, cut into 1½"-2" pieces (photo of this item at bottom)
1 tsp. minced garlic (or you can use garlic powder)
salt & pepper
Over med heat, warm 1 Tbsp oil & add onions in a large skillet. Stir till semi-tender. In a seperate bowl, mix boiling water with bouillon. When it's incorporated, add it to the skillet. Add rice and italian seasoning. Bring
to a boil. Put heat down to low and cover. Cook 50 minutes.
While that's cooking, put all veggies (except tomatoes) together in a dry skillet with remaining 2 Tbsp oil. Heat over med-hi heat till almost roasted. Add tomatoes, chicken & garlic & cook till the edges begin to brown. Set aside. Add salt & pepper & toss.
When rice is done, mix in veggies. Season to taste.
Here's a photo of the pre-grilled chicken:
