chicken and broccoli rice salad


i’ve been loving the “best broccoli” recipe that i discovered a couple of weeks ago and, having made a huge tray of it to go with roast chicken, i used the leftovers to make this simple rice salad.


it was very easy – basmati rice mixed with leftover broccoli, small pieces of leftover roasted chicken, lemon zest and juice, a handful of toasted pine nuts and some shredded basil. very simple, a great way to turn one meal (roasted chicken with roasted broccoli) into two meals, and very delicious.
