Barbecued Chicken Breast
Oriental Brown Rice and Zucchini (Courgette) Salad

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      This used the last of the Barbecue Sauce from Sunday.  I did not include this Barbecue Sauce in the shopping list but left it here in case you needed it.  It's all Pantry items.

Barbecued Chicken Breasts

Total time: 30 minutes
   A quick, savory marinade and a spicy barbecue sauce to finish makes these chicken breasts perfect for a quick summer dinner. Save a bit of barbecue sauce to pour over just before serving.

Barbecued Chicken Breasts Ingredients:


Oriental Zucchini (Courgette) and Brown Rice Salad

Total time: 30 minutes
   I use 'Uncle Ben's' which is all I can get and it is quick cooking.  It looks like brown Basmati and cooks in 15 minutes.  You could substitute Basmati, if you prefer.  The cooked rice is combined with the sautéed zucchini and a light, oriental vinaigrette just before serving.
