Save time and money by making a large batch of Chicken and rice.

Wrap it up into individual servings so you can take it to work for lunch.

This recipe is made with brown rice because it is so much healthier than white rice.

This sounds tasty, but I would have to change the proportions for a diabetes-friendly diet. A fifth of a breast is not enough protein for an adult.

Of course you can adjust this any way you like, I try to eat several smaller meals throughout the day, rather than 3 large meals.
