Chicken & Rice

I made this recipe for dinner the other night for the hubby and I and it was great! Pretty easy to make, and very little clean up.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked (hubby put them on the grill for me)
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp rosemary
salt and pepper
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups brown rice
3/4 pound fresh broccoli florets
1 cup carrots, peeled and cut into penny slices, then parboiled
1/2 cup edamame, frozen

1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium temp. Add oinion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, and salt. Cover and cook over low heat until onion has softened (about 10 minuts). Add chicken broth and stir in brown rice. Cook uncovered over high heat for 5 minutes. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occassionally.

2. Place the chicken over the rice in the skillet. Cook for another 15 minutes, until chicken is heated through. Remove chicken from pan and cover with tin foil to keep warm.

3. Add broccoli, edamame and parboiled carrots to rice mixture. Heat for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Serve immediately.
