I NEED a sauce to put over chicken and rice

  1. I NEED a sauce to put over chicken and rice


    I've eaten chicken and brown rice everyday for YEARS! It's one of my favorite meals but I'd like to find a sauce to put over it, any ideas?


  2. Orange Sauce is a good one, or even a low sodium soy sauce if you're into the Asian flavors. Those never seem to get old to me, and the bonus is you can use the same sauces on veggies as well. This is key for me since I combine chicken, rice, and veggies all in the same container.

  3. agree with the guy above, and i also like to use low sodium cream of chicken, made extra thick as a gravy type thing

  4. I put Pesto on mine! You only need just over a tea spoon full on top. Dont stir it in just take little bits with each fork full. There are quite a few flavours, smoked aubergine is my favourite. Its also made with olive oil so lots of nice fats!

  5. I use Newman's Own oil and vinagarette salad dressing. Fairly low cal with most cals coming from the olive oil. Works GREAT in tuna and rice as well.

  6. Orange sauce would be great but all I ever seem to find is marinade, is there any particular brand you use?

  7. How about you slap some curry sauce in that sucker.

    make your own:

    1-2 Tablespoons soy (or terriaki)
    1/2 - 1 Tablespoon orange juice
    1/4 - 1/2 tsp peel or zest ( most of the flavor comes from here)

    *oil if needed.

    * 1 tsp of honey or sugar if you want it sweet. You can also try 1/2 packet of splenda

    * 1/8-/14 tsp red pepper to make it hot

    Simmer the sauce at medium to medium low for 5 mins or so to reduce it.

    That would cover a typical plate of stir fry (about 6oz chicken and 3/4-1 cup rice).

    I cook it almost twice a week. To change it up, add fresh ginger and lemon instead of orange.

    There are many many ways to spice up a simple sauce like this. The key is to simmer and reduce the liquid over low heat to thicken it up. You can also add some corn starch (<1/2 tsp) to thicken (dissolve in small amount of cold water before adding to sauce).

    you ROCK!

  10. what the heck is "orange sauce"? Orange colored sauce? sauce made out of oranges? rofl

    uhmmm you can put..a Asian sauce (mix 1/4soy sauce, 3/4vinegar, garlic, crushed peppers) and cook your chicken with it.

    or, spicy sweet and sauce you can buy at some Asian food markets. They use it for egg rolls too.

    ketchup is a nice too u get omega-3 lol

  11. If I'm in a hurry in the morning I'll just pour olive oil and soy sauce over it. The soy sauce adds a nice flavour and the olive oil means it isn't dry

  12. I use mustard seeds, some random oil and random vinegar (I like to mix it up for flavour).
    Or cook up some beans in tomato souse, chillis etc.

    Haha. Yes one of the the effects of DCP on top of helping with my fatloss :P

    Some viet's mix fish sauce and vinegar, its pretty damn good. Goes almost with anything, very wierd but delicious. It goes with eggrolls, chicken, meat, and salads. lol.

    What do you eat with wasabi and soy sauce? I only eat sushi with it. My friend thought it was avocado/guacamole and ate a spoonful, wish i had a camera.

  15. This tastes almost like barbeque sauce but better, and healthy

    Worstechire sauce, sugar free ketchup, 1 packet splenda, and apple cider vinigar mixed....its delicious...even works as a salad dressing

  16. I just put supercarb over rice/tuna and it was ****ing awesome.

    When I forget to plan a dinner it goes something like:
    Wok + random oil of the week + chicken + random veggies + fish sauce
  18. Thumbs up


    asian soy with sesame is awsome on chicken.
    only takes about a tablespoon to marinade and adds a good flavor, add some pepper flakes to spice it up

  19. I put salsa on mine sometimes for some added flavor.

  20. All too often I use BBQ sauce (bad, bad! sugars...), but lately I've really enjoyed the taste of low sodium gravy. Generally, the only downside to it is the sodium (virtually fat-free and carb-free), so pick one that has 50% sodium. I don't think you'll be dissapointed! Simple, yet... delicious.

  21. Tried some HOISIN GARLIC sauce last night on brown rice and chicken breast and it was awsome.

  22. non/low -fat pre-made gravy - and lightly
