Eating on a budget part 2! Seasoned chicken breast with roasted chicken gravy and steamed veggies

Are you hungry??? Do you want a healthier version of comfort food? Do you need a very easy recipe?

Well, I have an entire meal for you!

Seasoned chicken breast with roasted chicken gravy with a side of brown basmati rice and steamed veggies!!  OH MY GOODNESS!

It is very difficult to find sauces and creamy toppings that are not a gut buster.  Simply Organic is a wonderful brand that makes a variety of delicious sauces and mixes.  They are very low in calorie, only contain organic ingredients, are very healthy and do not contain MSG.  I purchase them from Sprouts so I know they are good for me!

Emerson (my fiancé) fell in love with this one.

I had a little help from these grocery finds.


1 1/3 c water (for the rice)

1 cup warm water (for the gravy mix)

1 tbsp of Parsley (fresh or dried)

Lawry’s Black Pepper Seasoned Salt

½ tsp Sea Salt

1 tbsp Canola Oil

2 tbsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

2 pieces of Chicken Breast

1 cup Basmati Brown Rice

Yellow Squash


Green beans (fresh or frozen)

1 package of Simply Organic Roasted Chicken Gravy (only $1.49!)

Here we go!

Basmati Brown Rice

Pour the water, brown rice, parsley, salt and canola oil in a sauce pan.  Cover and bring to a boil for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, turn off the heat and allow the rice to simmer for 5 minutes.

Seasoned Chicken Breast

Heat a pan on medium with the EVOO.  Coat the chicken breast with the seasoned salt and parsley.  Cook the chicken for about 10 minutes on each side.  Make sure to cover the pan with a lid so the chicken stays nice and juicy.

Roasted Chicken Gravy

All you need to do is follow the package directions!  This is super easy gravy.  All you have to add is water.  Can you believe that?!

Steamed Veggies

Well, this is just self-explanatory!  Steam your veggies in a steamer on the stove or in the microwave.  I chopped up half of a zucchini and half of a yellow squash.  Use any veggies you want!

Once everything is done, top it off with the roasted chicken gravy!  Delish!
