Harvest Grains with Chicken and Brussels Sprouts

February 3, 2010

This is a quick and easy way to incorporate roasted veggies with grains and any other leftovers you happen to have around.  I saw this Harvest Grains blend at Trader Joe’s and picked it up thinking it would be a great base for weekday lunches or a dinner side dishes.  The mix contains Israeli Style Couscous, Orzo, Baby Garbanzo Beans, and Red Quinoa and takes only about 15 minutes to prepare.  Since I had some leftover roasted chicken and golden crusted brussels sprouts sitting around, I just threw them all together to create this simple yet complete dish.  Im sure just about any combination of veggies and protein will work great and I recommend this recipe for those of us easing into experimenting with new veggies like brussels sprouts!

Harvest Grains Salad with Roast Chicken and Brussels Sprouts

  • 1 cup Trader Joe’s Harvest Grains Blend
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1/2 Tb butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded roasted/cooked chicken
  • 1 cup Golden Crusted Brussels Sprouts

1) Bring water to a boil (can also use broth).  Add butter and stir in Harvest Grains Blend

2)  Bring back to boil, add a pinch of salt.  Reduce heat and simmer covered for 10 mins 

3)  Stir together chicken, grains, and brussels sprouts and serve!  Sprinkle with cheese if you like.

    It makes me so sad to think of how long it took me to discover how much I love brussels sprouts. They are amazing!!! And I’ve always wanted to try that TJ’s grain mix. Kinda looks like funfetti. 😉
