Brown Rice Bowl

The South Arm Community Kitchen theme for this kitchen is to make quick meals with rotisserie chicken. Rotisserie chicken is a versatile ingredient. We made three different flavour salad out from two chicken breasts from a rotisserie chicken.


The first salad is a Brown Rice Bowl which has an Asian flavour.


  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice (click here on how to cook brown basmati rice)
  • 1/2 cup carrots, julienned or grated
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 rotisserie chicken, shredded or chopped
  • rice vinegar to taste
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
  • torn nori strips (optional)
  • salt to taste

Saute until heated through, about three minutes.

If you prefer cold salad, just mix the ingredients in a bowl.

Add cucumber and cherry tomatoes.
