Ww Really Low Fat Chicken Flavour Rice

Ww Really Low Fat Chicken Flavour Rice created by Annacia

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.

ingredients

directions

  • In a pan, put the rice, onion, garlic and italian seasoning.
  • Crumble in the stock cubes.
  • Pour the boiling water into the pan and stir to dissolve the stock cubes.
  • 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.
  • Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. By this stage, nearly all the liquid should have been absorbed.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste (bear in mind, the stock cubes contain quite a lot of salt).
  • Serve hot or allow to cool and refrigerate.
  • NB: If reheating this rice in the microwave, add a little water before reheating so the rice doesn't dry out.

    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!

    Very nice rice...I made it as side, and kind of wished I'd just made the rice and thrown in some leftover chicken. The italian seasoning seemed to overpower the other dishes. But I think this would be fabulous as a one dish meal....adding some chicken and throwing in some steamed fresh broccoli.

    When I saw the recipe I thougt it's going to be a four star becoz I really liked your Lemon Garlic Rice. But this one was quite nice too. I made my own Italian seasoning. Haven't had plain rice in a while now.

    Tasted good - good flavor. Couldn't tell it was WW, but glad it was! I think I'll add an extra bullion cube next time for a bit more chicken flavor. I use low sodium cubes so it's ok. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag 2009.
