Poached chicken and brown rice salad with lemon vinaigrette
Healthy resolutions are hard to keep in place. One way is to make a dish that has many familiar elements, all cooked in a way that doesn’t add up to much fat or calories.
Here, a warm salad of nutty brown rice, edamame, and poached chicken is brightened with citrus dressing. Simmer brown basmati in a heavy-bottomed pot. Whisk together a lemony vinaigrette, and toss the dressing with the warm grains, soy beans, and scallions. Top with chicken breasts cooked slowly in a flavorful stock.
