Two for one!

Here is a super easy recipe for 2 quick meals:

Day one: Easy Parmesan Chicken, rice, and steamed veggies.

Make twice as much as you need to feed your family. (for me and DD1, it was 1 piece of chicken and 1 cup of rice)

Coat boneless skinless breasts in parmesan cheese, and saute over medium high heat in 2 TBSP Olive Oil. about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. You don't need to cook it all the way through. Place chicken in 9X13 pan and cover with foil. Cook on 375 for 15 min or until juices are clear: DON'T overcook. Let sit 5 minutes before serving. (This lets the juices redistribute so the chicken is tender and juicy!)
Rice: I used brown rice. It's healthier.
Serve your chicken, rice, and veggies however you like! Cut up your leftover chicken into cubes, and store with the leftover rice.

Day Two: Easy chicken fried rice
Heat 3TBSP oil in pan. Dump in your leftovers with some onion powder (or onions) and a little garlic powder. Saute. Add in 1-2 cups frozen peas and carrots (defrosted). Stir fry for 2 minutes. Push to side and cook a scrambled egg. Add 1-2 TBSP soy sauce and 1 tsp sesame oil.
Mix, and serve. (You can add green onions, or spice this up any way you like! Very versatile!)
