Clean Eating Dinner Recipe- Chicken and Rice Bake

I love simple, no-fuss recipes.  And when they're delicious?  That's a win-win for everybody  because it means they'll actually get eaten.  

The Chicken and Rice bake served both of those purposes.  Plus, it was a healthy clean meal so I didn't feel guilty eating it.  


1½ cups uncooked brown rice
2 (14.5-oz) cans reduced-sodium beef broth
2 (8 oz) packages sliced fresh mushrooms
1 shallot, minced
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
¼ cup olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons butter
6 bone-in, skinless chicken breasts
½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine rice, broth, mushrooms, shallot, thyme, 2 Tbl oil and butter in a lightly greased 13x9 baking dish.  Cover and bake 30 minutes. 

 Meanwhile, heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.  Brown chicken in hot oil 3 minutes per side

Add chicken to rice mixture in baking dish.  Cover and bake 45 minutes longer or until chicken is done and rice is tender. 

The suggested side dish recipe was a Strawberry-Spinach Salad.  I happened to have all of the ingredients on hand, so I went for it.  I'm not a huge raw spinach or strawberry eater, but I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried it.  And?  It was actually pretty yummy. I ate my entire serving.  

½ cup sliced almonds
2 (5-oz) packages fresh baby spinach
1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil


Heat almonds in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring until lightly toasted and fragrant; let cool.  
Combine spinach, strawberries and almonds in a serving bowl.  Whisk together lemon juice, honey, thyme, salt, pepper and olive oil.  Pour dressing over salad tossing well to coat. 

 ** You know why I love Wednesdays?  Because every week when I wake up, I see the notification that I have a new menu available on my Emeals app.  They have some exciting new things happening right now like a FREE Low Calorie Jumpstart guide with any purchase (this would be great paired with the Clean Eating option to help get ready for swim suit season).  And because most of us are busy moms with kids who only like to eat certain things, they're now offering a Kid-Friendly menu.  I wish this was around when my oldest was a toddler.  The boy survived solely on chicken nuggets and chocolate milk.  

The best part is that you can use discount code MEALS15 for 15% off.  Yay!
