I read a tip by Michelle Arndt on Cooking Light's Facebook page. I've been meaning to try it for a while and finally did tonight.
She had a tip for baking brown rice in the oven. Combine 1 cup brown rice with 1 can chicken broth, 1 tbsp olive oil and the seasonings you like (I added rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper). Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
The reason this caught my attention is that pork chops are generally cooked at 350 degrees, so you can kill two dinner items with one temp! And it worked. I made the chops and the rice in the oven...
and The Family Kitchen's Weeknight Zucchini Parmesan recipe on the stove. Ready to eat in an hour!
