Total Drek

There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back."

Cooking with Drek!

Drek's Soy Chicken


1 pound of chicken breast

Two stalks of broccolli

One package of fresh, uncut mushrooms

1 cup (uncooked) brown rice

1/4 cup soy sauce


(1) Wash all produce thoroughly.

(2) Chop broccolli flower into bite sized pieces. Stalk may be used, or discarded, according to personal preference. If used, peel the skin and cut into slices. Chop slices into halves or quarters.

(3) Remove stems from mushrooms, leaving only the cap. Otherwise, leave mushrooms unaltered.

(4) Wash chicken breast carefully. Cut away any fat or blood vessels. Dice chicken into small, bite sized pieces. Keep in mind that the chicken will decrease in size when cooked.

(5) Bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add brown rice. Cover and reduce heat to approximately 1/3 of possible. Stir occasionally to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan. (The rice should require approximately 45 minutes to cook completely)

(6) Wait fifteen minutes.

(7) Using medium-large skillet, saute chicken on medium-high heat. Stir frequently to prevent chicken from sticking to skillet.

(8) When chicken is white and cooked on the outside, add chopped vegetables and soy sauce. Stir thoroughly. Cover and reduce heat to 1/3 possible. Stir occasionally.

(9) Simmer chicken and vegetable mixture until almost all the moisture has been absorbed by the food, or the rice is done, whichever comes first. (If the chicken and vegetables are ready before the rice, reduce heat to low, uncover, and stir regularly.

(10) Remove rice from heat. Add chicken and vegetable mixture to rice. Stir thoroughly.

Makes four dinner servings. Enjoy!
