|Black rice with grilled chicken and all the trimmings of sweet yams,|
and grilled sweet vegetable spread is light and yet full of flavor.
So....these are what I have lying around waiting for me to notice them....
1 medium size yam (sweet potato) -baked for 20-30 minutes completely wrapped in foil or microwaved for 3-4 minutes completely covered in a very moist paper towel. Let cool and cubed; then brown in the same pan as the chicken with a little olive oil just until it gets some color.
6 pieces of chicken scaloppine (thinly sliced - or pork chops) - seasoned with my "amazing dry rub" and a tablespoon of buttermilk - See recipe on previous posting Oct.2 for "grilled chicken tenders".
1 cup of black rice and 1/4 cup of brown rice combined (see Nov.1 posting of "black rice pilaf" for recipe).
Scallion and cherry tomato for garnish- grill on the same pan as the chicken for a few minutes.
Sweet red pepper spread - this is a regular "resident" in my kitchen - my son just loves this (recipe to follow at a later date), but you can use home made salsa or store bought to put on the black rice as your sauce.
Now, wasn't that easy?! I was hoping this will serve 2- but, alas, my son finished off the whole serving......so be warned ....this recipe is for 1.....you wouldn't want to hear, "I'm still hungy"!
