    Ingredients:
    •    1 cup white rice
    •   500g broccoli florets, about 2-3 cups
    •    1 tablespoon olive oil
    •    500g boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2cm chunks
    •     Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    •    1 spring onion, thinly sliced
    •    1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds
    For the lemon glaze
    •    1/2 cup chicken stock
    •    1/4 cup pineapple juice
    •    Juice of 1 lemon
    •    1/4 cup honey
    •    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    •    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    •    1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
    •    3 cloves garlic, minced
    •    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    •    1 teaspoon Sriracha, optional

    Directions:
    1.    In a large saucepan of 1 1/2 cups water, cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
    2.    Place broccoli florets into a steamer or colander set over a pan of boiling water. Cover and steam for 5 mins, or until cooked through and vibrant green; set aside.
    3.    Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
    4.    Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Add chicken to the skillet and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes; set aside.
    5.    To make the glaze, stir in chicken stock, pineapple juice, lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic, cornstarch and Sriracha to the skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in chicken and gently toss to combine.
    6.    Serve chicken immediately with rice and broccoli, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds, if desired.

      Oh yum!! I’m a terrible ‘cook’ (although addicted to cook books …go figure) and so I usually judge whether i’ll make something or not by the list of ingredients, i.e. the moment I see an ingredient listed that I’ve never heard of or know, I turn the page (rather lazy of me neh)! Anyway, everything was ticking my boxes on this one until I got to the final ingredient … Sriracha … which I had never heard of. Probably now I realise because I’m not one for hot/chilli dishes … but as it’s optional, I can give this one a go. Love this kind of food … thanks for sharing! Happy day to you, Charlie bird and the bun xxx
