Ww Really Low Fat Chicken Flavour Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Shuzbud

I recently started weight watchers and have been searching for flavourful yet healthy meals. This is a really easy side dish or take-to-work lunch. Feel free to use fresh herbs in place of the italian seasoning, but add them toward the end of cooking. This recipe serves 3 as a side dish or 2 as a lunch. The figures may be different between countries, but by British Weight Watchers, this whole recipe is a total of 9 1/2 points.

What a lovely simple dinner side, just throw everything in the pot and let it go to work. I used brown rice so had to use a bit more water and cook for longer but this is definitely much nicer than plain old rice. Thanks for posting!

Directions

  1. In a pan, put the rice, onion, garlic and italian seasoning.
  2. Crumble in the stock cubes.
  3. Pour the boiling water into the pan and stir to dissolve the stock cubes.
  4. Simmer, covered, over a low to medium heat for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Stir every 5 minutes or so, to stop the rice from sticking to the pan.
  5. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. By this stage, nearly all the liquid should have been absorbed.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste (bear in mind, the stock cubes contain quite a lot of salt).
  7. Serve hot or allow to cool and refrigerate.
  8. NB: If reheating this rice in the microwave, add a little water before reheating so the rice doesn't dry out.
