      A stir-fry doesn't have to be Asian. This goes together quickly for a healthy dinner in under 30 minutes.  

Chicken with Mushrooms, Broccoli and Peppers

Total time: 25 minutes
    Tarragon and capers are the main flavor components of this chicken dish. They give a Mediterranean taste to the peppers and broccoli.  It all cooks quickly, leaving the vegetables crisp-tender.

Basmati Rice

    Simple, fragrant, fluffy, quick-cooking ....for me, the perfect white rice for a side dish.
