This meal jar is the perfect go to for lunch and dinner on the go, and the jar creates the perfect portion control vessel. Try adding a sprinkle of parmesan to the rice or chicken to add a little extra flavor or switch out the asparagus for broccoli, brussel sprouts or sauteed spinach.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

1 lb. chicken breast, cubed

½ c onion, diced

1 c tomatoes, diced

½ c fresh basil, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

 

1 cup brown rice, cooked

1 lb. asparagus

Directions:

Add rice and 2 cups of water to small saucepan.  Cook on medium low heat for 30 minutes with the lid on.

Saute onions and tomatoes over medium heat until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Cook chicken and add salt and pepper to taste.  After chicken is fully cooked, top with fresh basil and remove from heat.

To cook the asparagus, heat ½ cup of water in a saute pan until it starts to simmer.  Cut asparagus into 3-4 inch pieces and add to simmering water.  Cook for 4-5 minutes or until asparagus is tender.

Layer ¾ c chicken mixture, ½ cup of rice and a fourth of the asparagus. Repeat in other 4 containers.
