  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cumin

  • 1 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 Lime
  • 1 cup Broth
  • 1 cup Tomato Sauce

Instructions

Prepare the chicken and vegetables

Cook the chicken and vegetables

  • Preheat 2 tbsp of oil to high heat in a large frying pan/pot.
  • Stir fry the chicken along with the vegetables for about 4 minutes or until chicken breasts are mostly cooked on the outside.
  • Add in the sushi rice, broth, and tomato sauce. Stir until everything is well incorporated and bring it to a boil and then cover the pan with a lid and simmer for 35 minutes.
  • Stir the rice around every 10 minutes so nothing sticks to the bottom.
