Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool.
  2. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool, peel, and slice.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink and juices run clear.
  4. Whisk oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl until lightly emulsified; set aside. Place tomatoes, broccoli, peas, and corn together in a large mixing bowl; toss to combine. Add eggs and rice, and toss again. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Toss with dressing to coat just before serving.

I was very happy with this recipe. I was looking for a well balanced, healthy meal that I could take to work for lunch that I didn't have to worry about heating up. This fit the bill perfectly with lots of protein & veggies. It reminded me of cold fried rice, but without all the oil and fat. The only thing I substituted was brown rice for the white rice. Thanks!

i really simplified this recipe b/c i was making it while camping. It's so easy and versatile. i omitted the chicken and egg, but added chopped carrots. i used brown rice (cooked according to the package) and used a low-cal italian dressing instead of the oil/vinegar. it was really tasty and i received many compliments.

The vegetables remarkably bring in the flavor with this dish. I doubled the dressing because it was very light otherwise. I also steamed the broccoli for one minute then blanched it in cold water (tastes better than raw broccoli). Refridgerating this for an hour blends the flavors. I added walnuts at the end. I will make this again. Thanks.
