1Cook Rice

In a small saucepan, combine rice, measured water, pinch of salt & bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover & cook until rice is tender & water is absorbed, about 17 minutes. Keep covered until ready to serve.

2Stir-Fry Chicken

3 Stir-Fry Veggies

To skillet with chicken, add snow peas, green onions & carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are just tender & chicken is cooked through, 2–3 minutes. Add a splash of water if the skillet is becoming too dry during the cooking process.
