Chicken and Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by michelle

Alright, I'm a big fan of one-pot meals, and most of my meals I make for one person, because I live alone. So you can always make more if you want to! This one is really super easy though. Also, I'm talking about the SMALL bullion cubes, NOT the big ones! Also, I use low-sodium soy sauce

I was really excited about this recipe because it looked so easy, had interesting seasonings, and was scaled for just one person. My concern with it is the amount of water called for. I used the 3 cups, as called for, but ended up draining off 2 cups of liquid before serving (and taking the picture I posted). While I enjoyed the dish, I have to wonder how much flavor went down the drain with the extra liquid. I'd suggest trying this with just one cup of water, and adding a little salt along with the rice. Otherwise, a good easy meal for those nights when you are only cooking for one. Thanks for posting!
