Chimichurri Rice with Chicken

Normally I would not advise anyone to go out and buy packaged food because I don’t endorse all the mysterious gunk that goes into processed food. I make an exception today for Trader Joe’s Chimichurri Rice (frozen). This stuff is tasty in ways I’ve never known before. A quick look at the label-I confess to being a label reading nerd in the aisles of the grocery store- and it reveals no ingredients I cannot recognize or pronounce nor does it have excessive levels of salt. I sautéed some chicken, threw it into the rice and had a meal in about 15 minutes

If you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s, bummer.

Trader Joe’s to the rescue!

Chimichurri Rice with Chicken

3 thin cut chicken cutlets

1 tbsp. sesame oil

1 bag Chimichurri Rice

Heat the oil in a pan. Sautee the chicken over medium-low heat about  3 minutes per side or just until done. Remove from pan and cut into bite-sized pieces. Cook the rice according to the directions on the package.  Mix together and serve.
