On the menu tonight:

Brown Organic Rice

  • In saucepan, add 1 cup of cold water and ½ cup of brown organic rice

Serving Tips

Serve on a bright solid colored plate.  For our dinner, we used an orange plate by Fiesta. You can read more about our dishes here: Fiesta Dishes

Place a 1/2 cup of rice on each plate.  Next, top the rice with chicken.  Lastly, place the snap peas around the edge of the plate, around the rice and chicken.
