It’s not easy to cook for one person. Many times when you find yourself ready to eat, it’s just easier to run out and go through a drive-thru somewhere. Honestly, though, it’s simply not a healthy alternative and it’s nowhere near as good as a meal at home.
Here’s a super easy meal that makes two generous servings with one of those being a leftover. This entire process takes less than 10 minutes! This leftover meal heats up nicely and was quite possibly as good as the first meal.
A rundown of what I used:
1 chicken breast, cubed. I purchase my chicken from a small local grocery store. There is no comparison between the quality of the meat.
1 package of Birds Eye Flavor Full Teriyaki Broccoli
1 cup of shredded carrots
1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon of sweet ginger garlic
2 Tablespoons of chopped onion
Soy sauce (to taste)
I purchase these Minute Rice two packs. This is a perfect serving size and I can heat one up with the original meal and the other pack up for the leftover meal.
The quick and easy instructions: Microwave broccoli according to directions for your microwave. While that’s getting started, melt the coconut oil and put on the chicken. Stir fry for about 4 minutes or until the chicken is starting to brown. Be sure to stir constantly. Add carrots, onions and sweet ginger garlic. Stir fry for another minute. Add the broccoli that you have microwaved and the soy sauce. When I take the broccoli out of the microwave, I put in the rice for one minute. Stir fry about a minute and a half. Serve with your rice.

Delicious! If you decide to try it, please let me know how you liked it. I know everyone’s tastes are different so I’m very curious to hear what you added or deleted and how you enjoyed the meal.
