A healthy and delicious weekday meal is Fried rice with Broccoli. Add devilish chicken drumsticks and you have a complete meal with a bit of a kick. You can make rice from broccoli, but in this Fried Rice with Broccoli recipe, I have chosen to combine the two. They form a perfect combination!
How to make fried rice with broccoli? Stir-fry boiled rice with broccoli and garlic. Add pepper, salt and cilantro for flavor. The chicken is made devilish by adding pepper, salt, Tabasco and tomato ketchup.
Other recipes with broccoli in it on the blog are Broccoli with Coconut or Broccoli and Feta Puff Pastry. Brococolini with Anchovy Sauce is a variation on broccoli. If you want another dish with a green vegetable look at this Spinach Pie. The recipe is from the cookbook Herfst Recepten (Fall Recipes) from Emté (Emté used to be a grocery store chain).
Didn’t change much, just added some more chicken drumsticks. Next to that the chicken needs to cook longer than stated in the recipe.
