Brown Rice Asparagus with Chicken


This was delicious. Usually I make it vegetarian, but we had some chicken that needed to be used - so I just threw it in. This is a filling meal, and healthy.

1 to 2 cups Brown rice (cook how you want)
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1 cup cut asparagus
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 TBSP pine nuts
1 chicken breast, chopped and cooked
salt and pepper

Cook rice according to directions. Heat oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add pine nuts as oil heats and cook until browned. Stir frequently and try not to burn. Add asparagus to oil and stir fry until crisp and tender. Add cooked chicken. and a dash of salt and pepper. Add garlic and stir fry for 30 seconds. When rice is done, add to a medium size bowl. Add chicken mixture on top of rice, then sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
