Lemon chicken with red rice
So, sautee chopped onion and celery in olive oil until a bit soft. Push veg to edge of pan, turn heat up a bit, add bite sized pieces of chicken, keep stirring until all edges a bit cooked. Add other veg (chopped green beans and diced carrot), some stock, minced garlic, juice of a lemon or so and sprinkle of mixed herbs. If you're feeling fruity grate in zest of lemon. There should be enough liquid to keep the mixture a "sauce" but not to drown the contents. Simmer gently for 10(ish) minutes. Meanwhile cook red rice (it's a grass officially) according to packet instructions. (or use any other sort of rice/ pasta/ potatoes/ bread... whatever). Just before serving stir in big handful of chopped parsley and another squirt of lemon juice.
