Thyme To Grill Recipe
Grilled Chicken Breast
Grilled Chicken Breast with Charred Broccoli and Spiced Rice
4 each Chicken Breast
½ jar Bottled Thyme Chicken Jus
To Taste Bottled Thyme Hickory Salt
½ cup White Rice, uncooked
½ tsp Chili powder, cumin
2 cup Water
1 med Carrot – small dice
2 cup Broccoli – small florets, blanched
To Taste Salt & Pepper – (rice, broccoli)
Enough oil to sauté the carrots
Start to heat up your grill to med-high heat. As your grill is warmed up, heat up a medium sauce pan (make sure you have a lid) to med-high heat with oil. Sauté the carrots for 2-3 minutes. Add the chili powder, cumin, salt & pepper to the pan. Taste the spices for 1 minute, long enough for you to start smelling them.
Add the uncooked rice and toast for approximately 2 minutes before adding the water. Lightly mix and bring up to a light simmer. Reduce the heat to med-low and cover. Cook for 15 minutes covered the entire time. At end of the 15 minutes, turn heat off and allow to stand for another 5 minutes before stirring.
While the rice is cooking, pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Lay the broccoli evenly on a cookie sheet; season to your liking. Cook for 15-20 minutes, mixing at about the half way point.
Right before the grill is ready to cook on, start to heat the Chicken Jus on low heat to a simmer. Season the chicken breasts with the Hickory Salt. Place directly onto the hotter part of the grill and cook 3-4 minutes before flipping; cook for another 3-4 minutes. Note that cooking times are going to vary, depending on the thickness of your chicken. You will know it is finished when the chicken is firm to touch.
Plate and Enjoy!
