Honey-Lemon Chicken with Vegetable Brown Rice

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

I know how boring chicken with rice sounds, but believe me, this is not just chicken and rice, it’s much  more than that.

OK, first of all, the chicken is marinated with lemon and honey and then coated with sesame seeds, and it’s not fried but bake.
So you’ve got sweet and sour juicy chicken bites coated with sesame seeds that are actually  quite healthy.

Secondly, the rice is cooked with some yummy fine beans and sweet corn, and it is brown rice (which I personally think it’s tastier than the white).

This recipe needs only a few minutes to cook, it is super tasty and super healthy – a perfect weekday dinner I’d say.

Here’s what you need.
