  • Prep Time: 8 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 28 mins
  • Yield: Serves 6 1x


  • 1 Cup uncooked brown Rice
  • 1/2 cup uncooked Quinoa
  • 4 Chicken thigh fillets, sliced into small strips.
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger (grated)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Cups of Mixed Vegetables (I used broccoli, grated cabbage and sliced carrots for this recipe)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 mild chilli finely sliced (Optional)


  1. In a large pot, bring rice and Quinoa plus 4 cups of water to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes until rice is soft and not too chewy. Remove from heat and allow rice to slowly absorb excess water.
  2. Heat up a fry pan. Add onions, garlic, ginger (plus chilli if you are using it) and cook until soft. Add chicken and cook until cooked through and lightly browned.
  3. Add Vegetables to your chicken and lightly fry until just tender.
  4. Add Rice to the chicken and vegetables and mix through. Fry for a few minutes until the rice makes that delicious sounding frying sound and all moisture is gone from the bottom of the pan.
