I have found ethnic foods to be a good source of frugal meals. This is a new one we tried just this week and it was good. I used leftover chicken for this dish.
1 cup uncooked brown rice
2 – 3 cups cooked, chopped chicken
5 cups chicken broth
1 head napa or Chinese cabbage, sliced lengthwise
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
Cook rice according to package directions.
Place chicken and broth in a pot and simmer for 20 minutes. Add cabbage to broth mixture and cook for another 10-15 minutes.
Blend together the soy sauce and lemon juice in a separate bowl or measuring cup.
Serve rice with chicken mixture on top. Individuals can sprinkle their own dish with desired amount of soy sauce mixture.
Cucumber Onion Salad
Fresh Bread, if desired
