  3. salt/pepper to taste
  4. 2 Tablespoons of good virgin olive oil for saute
  5. 1/4 cup olive oil
  6. 1/3 cup of water
  7. 1/4 cup apricot or orange jam
  8. 1/4 cup stone ground mustard
  9. 1 teaspoon of sage, oregano and thyme (fresh or dried)
  10. 3/4 cup brown rice
  11. fresh mint or parsley for garnish
Instructions
  1. Put up the brown rice; rinse in cold water and add to boiling water (1 ½ cups) lower to simmer and cook for about 40 mins. or until all water is absorbed.
  2. Cook chicken breast for 40 mins. at 350 degrees and let cool for approx 10 mins then slice in long pieces.
  3. Saute onion in olive oil until golden, add spices stir 2 mins.
  4. In separate bowl: mix the oil, water, mustard and jam well.
  5. Add to saute mixture and cook 5-8 mins more.
  6. Add chicken pieces and blend with mixture.
  7. Stir over the rice and a bed of colorful veggies
  8. Garnish with mint or parsley
Notes
  1. Try not to open the rice pot lid until finished to break the steam tunnel, the rice comes out perfect when you don't touch the lid. Also never salt the rice until it's finished. You can use other spices such as tarragon or rosemary if they are available to you, and always use fresh if possible.
