Ingredients

Two 8.5- to 8.8-ounce packages 90-second, microwave-ready whole grain brown rice, or 4 cups cooked brown rice

1 tablespoon grapeseed or canola oil

8 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed and halved on the diagonal

1 large white onion, thinly sliced

1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced

Kosher salt

3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

10 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken breast meat, about 2 cups (from 1 rotisserie chicken)

3/4 teaspoon Moroccan spice blend (ras el hanout) or ground cinnamon

1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

Directions

  1. Prepare the rice according to package directions. Set aside. 
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large deep skillet over high heat. Add the green beans and onions and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. 
  3. Add the peppers and 1/2 teaspoon salt and stir-fry until the green beans and peppers are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the broth, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in the shredded chicken, rice, spice blend and 1/2 teaspoon salt and simmer until no excess liquid remains, about 1 minute. Season with salt. 
  4. Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with the parsley and pine nuts and serve.
