1 1/2 cups Green Cabbage (thinly sliced)

1/2 Green Bell Pepper (medium, chopped)

1 Tomato (medium, chopped)


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF (204ºC).

  2. Cook the rice according to package directions. Let the rice cool slightly.

  3. Meanwhile, place the chicken breast in a baking dish and season both sides with 1/2 of the oil and 2/3 of the taco seasoning. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the chicken breast is cooked through. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes then slice.

Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. Serve cold or to reheat store the cabbage, veggies, and yogurt separately from the chicken and rice.

More Flavour: Add red pepper flakes, smoked paprika, or cayenne pepper to the taco seasoning. Season with salt if needed.

Additional Toppings: Lime wedges, cilantro, or chopped green onion.

No Brown Rice: Use quinoa or cauliflower rice instead.
