When it comes time to do battle, I like to think of myself as capable warrior; defeating my foes with as much blood and gore as possible. Then I wake up and realize I haven’t got a thug bone in my body. So, I turn to cooking. It’s still a battle. I’m armed with a knife.

I’m good at it and people like it (just one so far, but others VIRTUALLY like it). I never thought it would be this much fun.

Due to the tens and tens of you who’ve demanded I create some guide of my culinary triumphs, here it is. It only takes a skillet, starch, vegetables and some diced chicken as well as less than 10 minutes of your precious time.

Hot & Rice Chicken

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1/3 cup diced red pepper
1 egg
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 and 3/4 cup cooked brown rice
1 and 1/2 cup diced chicken breast

The olive oil goes on the skillet. Heat it please. Throw your onions and red pepper and sauté, sauté, sauté. Crack your egg and make sure it lands on the skillet. You could make a mess elsewhere. Anyways, scramble it up and often. Add the soy sauce, hot sauce, rice and chicken. Stir that sucker until it blends, until you can’t tell what is what.

Eat it. You and your friend.

You know you want to eat it!
You know you want to eat it!

Guess what? That was 400-plus calories with a shitload of protein, carbs, fiber and the good fat. If you ran it off, your body would have kept all the good stuff.

Good eating and please tell me how you liked it!
